Maryland's game at Michigan on Saturday will kick at 3:30 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.
Last week, the Maryland athletic department announced – contrary to Big Ten television officials' statements – that Maryland would kick off against Michigan at noon on Nov. 22. Based on that, we published word of a noon start in this space. It has come to our attention that Maryland's announcement on Twitter was made in error and quickly deleted – and that the Terps and Wolverines will in fact kick later in the afternoon.
11/22 B1G FB confirmed: 12 ET: MN@NE (ESPN), PS@IL (E2), NU@PU (EU), IN@OS (BTN), RU@MS (BTN). 3:30 ET WI@IA (ABC, E2 mirror), MD@MI (BTN).— Mark D. Rudner (@BigTenMarkTV) November 16, 2014
Michigan (5-5, 3-3 Big Ten) had a bye this weekend. Maryland (6-4, 3-3 Big Ten) fell at home, 37-15, to Michigan State.
The Wolverines, to the tune of much publicity, have had a challenging season. From a national fracas over the mishandling of a quarterback's concussion to students protesting for an athletic director's job to five losses on the field, the Wolverines have seen plenty of turmoil. But they've won their last two games – against Indiana and Northwestern – and will be playing for bowl eligibility on Saturday.
