Reason for Maryland Terrapins vs #1 Ohio State Buckeyes

Maryland Terrapins +43

The Terps actually played well defensively against Michigan, holding them to 331 yards overall and just 176 in the air. Offensively, quarterback Josh Jackson struggled with accuracy, completing just 9 of 20 for 97 yards and a pick.

They threw for just 104 yards and rushed for 129 against a very good Wolverines defense. They also missed guard Terrance Davis (knee), who may miss the rest of the season. The good news for Maryland is that he should be able to redshirt since he played in just four games.

Maryland was never in this game, as the Terrapins got behind early.  Michigan took a quick 7-0 lead, after returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown.  Maryland was down 35-0 before scoring their first and only touchdown of the game. 

The Terrapins only touchdown came on a kick return.  Javon Leake returned a kickoff late in the 3rd quarter for 97 yds.  Maryland was out gained by Michigan 331 to 233 in the game.  The Terrapins were held to just 104 yds passing.  Maryland had 1 turnover in the loss.
