No. 3 Michigan will take on Maryland in its last true road game of the 2023 season. Kickoff is slated for noon Saturday.
The Wolverines (10-0, 6-0 Big Ten) are looking to tack on another win before facing Ohio State (No. 2) in their highly anticipated regular-season finale.
In its most recent game, Michigan downed Penn State, 24-15, on the road. Running back Blake Corum led the charge for the Wolverines with 26 carries for 145 yards and two touchdowns.
Donovan Edwards tacked on Michigan’s second touchdown of the night. Edwards had 10 carries and rushed for 52 yards. Michigan’s J.J. McCarthy attempted only eight passes and completed seven for 60 yards.
Maryland’s eager to get another win under its belt, this time on its home turf. The Terrapins held on to knock off Nebraska, 13-10, after Jack Howes kicked a 24-yard field goal at the end of the fourth quarter to put Maryland on top.
The last time the two faced one another on Sept. 24, 2022, Michigan won, 34-27, in Ann Arbor. McCarthy attempted 26 passes and completed 18 for 220 yards and two touchdowns.
Michigan’s head coach Jim Harbaugh will not be on the sidelines this weekend as he’s serving a three game suspension spanning the remainder of the 2023 regular season.
The Wolverines’ next victory will mark 1,000 all-time wins in program history. Harbaugh will be unable to witness the potential milestone in real time.
