The Maryland Terrapins haven't played in three weeks, so it's going to be interesting to see what kind of team we get in terms of rust and what not. The Indiana Hoosiers are an impressive team through five games and nearly upset Ohio State last week on the road. Indiana should be favored in this spot, but we have to question if last weeks loss has a bit of a letdown effect for this team after nearly pulling off one of the upsets of the season. And while Maryland has had all this team off to impact a rhythm, the Terps are led by a difference maker in Tagovailoa who has put this team on his back through three games. This feels like n exciting, back and forth Big Ten matchup.
I'll take my free touchdowns with Maryland.
