Maryland Terrapins vs Michigan Wolverines Recap for September 24th, 2022, 12:00PM ET
Maryland is playing Michigan at the Michigan Stadium stadium on Saturday, 9/24/2022 @ 12:00pm EST. Michigan -17 was the opening favorite and line hasn't moved.
Maryland surrendered 141 running yards, 369 passing yards, and an absurd 15 penalties for 141 yards against SMU.
False starts, offensive holding, pass interference, and unsportsmanlike behavior were among the penalties. Several players received several flags for infractions. With 10.3 penalties per game, they are presently tied for 126th place.
Against Michigan, Maryland should be able to move the ball sometimes, but the defense is the main worry. Their opponents in their first two games were Charlotte and Buffalo, and they are surrendering 392 yards per game (89th).
They rank 108th in the country with their 274 yards allowed through the air per game. They will be in serious trouble on Saturday if they keep having difficulty on the defensive end and incur plenty of penalties.
Although Jim Harbaugh likely wants to see another route, it surely wouldn’t be detrimental to see his squad face any difficulty.
When they destroyed Colorado State, Hawaii, and UConn by a collective score of 166-17, they didn’t have much. They defeated the Huskies last week courtesy of Blake Corum’s five rushing touchdowns and J.J. McCarthy’s 214 throwing yards. 30 of 34 for 473 yards and three touchdowns for the sophomore.
Early on, Cade McNamara had the advantage because of his experience, making him less of a surefire starter. McCarthy, though, accepted the position and embraced it.
Under Harbaugh, Michigan’s defense will be another enduring feature. The Wolverines are only surrendering 194 yards per game, which ranks third, and astonishing 91.3 passing yards (3rd).
Maryland Terrapins vs #4 Michigan Wolverines. The NCAAF pick for this game is the #4 Michigan Wolverines. Get on this queue quickly before it rises. This is going to explode completely.
Maryland only played one away game, which was against Charlotte. They lost 38-7 the previous time they visited Ann Arbor in 2019. Since 2015, every game in this series was a rout, with the Wolverines covering six straight games.
The Terps will be forced to play a lot of zone because of their propensity for fouling out and their issues in the secondary.
By throwing the ball, Michigan will be able to set up the run, after which Corum will take over with a strong day of rushing the football.
BETTING PREDICTION: The offensive line for the Wolverines will just wear out Maryland’s defense. The #4 Michigan Wolverines will win to a predicted score of 42-24.
