Maryland football picks up another loss to Michigan as their chances of bowl eligibility continue to plummet.
Maryland football lost to the Michigan Wolverines once again but this lost wasn’t as bad as the one last year.
The Michigan Wolverines got out to a hot start in this game scoring the first two touchdowns of the game in the first half. They scored three touchdowns in the second quarter.
Penalties once again were an issue for Maryland football, and a big pass play by Wolverines Quarterback Brandon Peters to Running Back Karan Higdon and a 15-yard roughing the passer penalty led to a touchdown drive.

For much of the game, Maryland football struggled to keep up with the Wolverines balanced attack offensively. Peters got his second start of the season and completed nine passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns.
With Max Bortenschlager out due to injury, Ryan Brand got the start at quarterback for the Terps. He led them down the field in the third quarter with a nice mix of run and pass plays. He connected with Ty Johnson for 28 yards, Taivon Jacobs for 26 yards, and D.J. Moore for 11 yards ultimately leading to a Henry Darmstadter 20 yard field goal.
Maryland’s only touchdown came from a Ryan Brand-Taivon Jacobs 10 yard connection. Jacobs recorded eight receptions for 92 yards and that score.
Michigan’s defense kept D.J. Moore in check, and he wasn’t able to have the kind of break out game that the Terps needed. That’s a credit to the Wolverines secondary. He did, however, break former Terps standout and Philadelphia Eagle Wide Receiver Torrey Smith‘s record of 30 straight games with a catch.
The Terps are facing the Michigan State Spartans Saturday Nov.17 in East Lansing. The Spartans got blown out by Ohio State 48-3.
