USA TODAY Sports

The Maryland Terrapins and Nebraska Cornhuskers meet Saturday afternoon in a Big Ten college football game at Memorial Stadium.

The Maryland Terrapins could use a bounce back victory after losing five of their last six games. The Maryland Terrapins need one more victory in order to become bowl eligible. Perry Hills is completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 1,139 yards, 10 touchdowns and three interceptions. Hills has just seven combined pass attempts in his last two games. D.J. Moore and Teldrick Morgan have combined for 867 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Levern Jacobs has 31 receptions. The Maryland Terrapins ground game is averaging 213.7 yards per contest, and Ty Johnson leads the way with 656 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Maryland is allowing 30.7 points and 445.3 yards per game. Shane Cockerille leads the Maryland Terrapins with 87 tackles, Jesse Aniebonam has six sacks and Alvin Hill has two interceptions.

The Nebraska Cornhuskers look for another victory to build their current lead in the Big Ten West. The Nebraska Cornhuskers have won six straight road games. Tommy Armstrong Jr. is completing 53.3 percent of his passes for 2,055 yards, 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Armstrong has one or less touchdown passes in six of his last seven games. Jordan Westerkamp and Stanley Morgan Jr. have combined for 780 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Alonzo Moore has 16 receptions. The Nebraska Cornhuskers ground game is averaging 186.7 yards per contest, and Terrell Newby leads the way with 727 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Nebraska is allowing 22.6 points and 359.2 yards per game. Josh Banderas leads the Nebraska Cornhuskers with 71 tackles, Ross Dzuris has 4.5 sacks and Kieron Williams has five interceptions.

The Terrapins are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Cornhuskers are 0-2-2 ATS in their last 4 home games. The under is 7-1 in Cornhuskers last 8 games overall and the over is 4-0 in Terrapins last 4 games in November. 

After seeing Maryland roll over like a dog at home to Ohio State and the Terps falling apart overall the last two months, I'm not sure how anybody expects them to compete on the road against a consistent Nebraska team. This game could get very ugly given how the Cornhuskers have played all season at home. I like Nebraska here in a blowout.

Pick:
Nebraska Cornhuskers -14
