The Maryland football team is now 0-11 against ranked opposition in Randy Edsall's five seasons as the program's head coach. The Terps' next shot to break that wheel will come, indeed, against the No. 1-ranked team in the land.
Despite a mediocre performance against Indiana that nearly resulted in a loss Saturday, the Buckeyes remained the consensus No. 1 in this week's Coaches Poll and AP Top 25.
Elsewhere in the Big Ten, in the Coaches Poll, Michigan State settled behind TCU at No. 3, Northwestern is No. 10, Michigan is No. 21, Iowa is No. 23, and Wisconsin just dropped out.
Maryland's schedule the next five games is really something. If the Terps can't find a win somewhere, Edsall's ranked-teams record in College Park will be 0-15 or 0-16 in short order.
Maryland and Ohio State kick off at noon next Saturday in Columbus. It's the Buckeyes' homecoming game, and it'll be televised on the Big Ten Network. The Terps are 0-1 against Ohio State all-time, the lone meeting coming last year.
