Maryland Form


Maryland go into this matchup on the back of their first defeat of the season so far.

The Terrapins opened with a 30-24 win over West Virginia before blowing out Howard 62—0.

They then edged Illinois 20-17 and beat Kent State 37-16 to keep their perfect record intact.

That came to an end last weekend though, as Maryland were crushed 51-14 by #5 Iowa.

QB Taulia Tagovailoa has thrown for 1,497 yards and 12 touchdowns already this season, but he has been careless at times, throwing six picks.

Dontay Demus has been his favorite target, resulting in 507 yards and three scores for the receiver.

Tayon Fleet-Davis is the lead running back. He has 445 yards from scrimmage as well as five TDs.

Ohio State Form


Ohio State were slow out of the block as they made hard work of a 45-31 victory at Minnesota.

They then fell to a surprised 35-28 defeat at home to #12 Oregon, but since then they have been on a tear.

The Buckeyes beat Tulsa 41-20 before putting up 59 points in a 59-7 win over Akron.

Ohio State then took their record to 4-1 and climbed back up to seventh in the rankings with a 52-13 victory at Rutgers.

CJ Stroud returned last weekend and put in an efficient display, completing 17 of his 23 pass attempts for 330 yards and five scores.

Stroud, who succeeded Justin Fields this offseason, is 80/124 for 1,293 yards, 13 touchdowns and three picks this season.

He has a triple-headed monster at receiver to throw too with Garrett Wilson (462 yards, four TDs), Chris Olave (374 yards, five TDs) and Jaxon Smith-Njigba (349 yards, three TDs) all producing.

Master Teague and Miyan Williams have both impressed in the run game, averaging 5.5 and 7.8 yards per carry respectively.

The backfield star is TreVeyon Henderson though. He has 597 yards from scrimmage as well as eight touchdowns. In the run game he is averaging 9.4 yards per carry.
