Following a narrow defeat in their first conference road game of the season, Maryland returns home to face a reeling Michigan State team. The Spartans have lost two straight in blowout fashion to Washington and Minnesota, and were booed off the field in East Lansing yesterday afternoon. The Golden Gophers dominated the game, owning 70% of the game's possession. Mel Tucker's defense has struggled to stop much of anything, and their offense hasn't identified any playmakers whatsoever as of yet.

 

Maryland has a lot to build on from a hard-fought game on the road against #4 Michigan, and they ought to have more than enough confidence to take care of business in this game. But if issues of the past start creeping back in, it's a game the Spartans could absolutely steal.

ESPN's Matchup Predictor gives the Terps a 64.6% chance of winning. 

 

Division game. Home game.  It's a game MD needs to win.   

Despite their struggles the last few weeks, MSU is coming off a 11 win season, a 3rd place finish in the East, and a Top 10 season overall. 

 

MD wants to move up in the division? MD wants yesterday to be a stepping stone? 
Gotta win this one.

Didn't they just give Tucker some ridiculous contract last year?  Gotta be a bit concerning for Sparty.

Yep, 10 years and $95 million guaranteed.

After the emotional Michigan win if I’m not mistaken. Which was an awesome game but yeah…

Yep, and followed it up by getting absolutely annihilated by Ohio State.

QB Taulia Tagovailoa and WR Rakim Jarrett are both still listed as starters on Maryland's depth chart for this game. But as we've seen in the past, that means very little. Locksley typically doesn't say much of anything about injuries during the week, so we may not know for sure whether or not they'll play until Saturday afternoon.

Locksley officially says both players will be "game-time decisions".

Locksley said today that both Tagovailoa and Jarrett have been practicing this week, but remain gametime decisions. Taulia has been operating with a knee brace all week, so it'll be interesting to see how much his mobility is affected if he does play.

I hope they look after his health better than the Dolphins do his brother.

Maryland may be able to pass at will.
