It’s homecoming week in Maryland as the Rutgers Scarlet Knights travel to College Park to face the Terrapins in a Big Ten East matchup Saturday afternoon.
Both teams are coming off losses heading into this one, Rutgers took quite the beating from Illinois, 38-17, while Maryland got doubled up by #12 Michigan 42-21.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights
Rutgers is now in the middle of a 5 game losing streak, and there really doesn’t look to be an end to it anytime soon. Their loss last week came to an Illinois team that had lost their last 12 Big Ten matchups.
This Rutgers team is bad. They are tied for the third worst offense in the entire country, averaging a measly 16.4 points per game. This team actually might have a hard time beating some high school squads, to be honest.
Defensively, they are just as bad. The Scarlet Knights opponents are scoring an average of 36.3 points a game against them. With the exception of the lone TD they gave up to Texas State, seemingly every other team they have played has lit them up, big time.
This couldn’t be a better matchup for the Terrapins after coming off that brutal loss last week against the Michigan Wolverines. The time has come to see if red-shirt freshman Kasim Hill can get his passing game in order and get Maryland back on track heading into the soft part of their schedule.
Maryland has struggled with the passing game so far this year, but Rutgers is giving up an average of 205.5 passing yards per game, so the Terrapins should be able to get the ball moving through the air Saturday afternoon.
Statistically this Maryland team is putting up some decent numbers, scoring an average of 31.2 points per game while holding their opponents to 26.6. These numbers alone spell why the spread is so heavily favoring the Terrapins.

This game shouldn’t be close at all. Rutgers is just too bad of a football team to be able to hang with this Maryland team. Struggling passing game or not, they’ve racked up points on better competition so far this season, this game should be no different.
