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.

Maryland is 3-0 and two of those wins were blowout victories. The offense is averaging 40 points per game and the Terrapins just had a close 34-27 win over SMU. They had to come back with 14 in the fourth quarter. Michigan is ranked 4th in the nation, averaging over 50 points a game, and the defense has allowed only 17 points. This game will have plenty of scoring and Michigan could get most of the points. Take the Over

Maryland has had a nice season so far with three wins in three games. However, wins against Buffalo and Charlotte aren’t extremely impressive, while a close win over SMU is solid, but not great. Michigan has played a cupcake schedule as well, but has absolutely dominated their opponents with a combined score of 166-17. Maryland may be solid this year, but Michigan is ranked as the fourth best team in the nation for a reason and that reason is that they are very good. They’re averaging 55.3 PPG and almost 500 yards of offense. Maryland is scoring about 15 less per game with similar yardage totals, but also giving up a lot of yards, specifically on the ground. Michigan is going to run all over the Terrapins in this one, and by controlling the game on the ground, they will dominate this game.

Prediction: Michigan to win easily and cover against what is going to be an overmatched Maryland team.

JJ McCarthy has led this team better than McNamara has and with their first “test” of the season, we will see the Wolverines play their guys after perhaps an “extended” fall camp. Ronnie Bell is a dangerous weapon McCarthy can hit downfield and I think Michigan stomps on Maryland today

Maryland may be the toughest test of Michigan's season yet, but I still don't think they stand a chance. Maryland's defense is suspect, and Michigan should have no problem scoring. Maryland's offense is good enough to stay alive, but not enough to actually threaten the Wolverines. Take Michigan -16.5 and the over.

Michigan has played some cupcakes for a non conference schedule and won easy now they open big 10 play against a athletic Maryland team! The Terms get around 500 yards a game on offense, Roman Hemby gets around 9 yards a carry on the ground! Michigan is bigger and stronger but the terms match up well in team speed!
