Game #11 Terps final home game of 2023

The Maryland Terrapins were not expected to be beat Ohio State or Penn State or even Michigan today — and with the win last week against Nebraska, the Terps are already bowl-eligible with a 6-4 record today. So this week against the No. 2 ranked team in the country, the Terps hope for a miraculous upset.

After today, the Terps finish up with Rutgers. Here is the AP Top-25 NCAA rankings. You will see Georgia at No. 1, Michigan next, and Ohio State right after them — giving the B1G-10 some bragging rights — and Penn State is not to far behind them.

QB Taulia Tagovailoa and the Terps defense is the key in this game. It will about Tagovailoa making some superstar plays and the defense of Maryland forcing turnovers.

“A few things stand-out. There’s no magic button to push.”

— head coach Michael Locksley said

P Colton Spangler has established himself as one of the best Maryland punters of all time. Spangler stands third all-time in program history with a 43.0 career punting average, narrowly trailing long-time NFL punters Brooks Barnard (43.7) and Adam Podlesh (43.1). Spangler broke the single-season record with a 45.5 punting average in 2021 and stands 10th all-time in program history with 7,486 career punting yards. Spangler is 12th among all active FBS punters in career punting average (43.0) (over 175 punt minimum).
