Here’s what Maryland football fans should watch on Saturday, including Michigan-Penn State

The Terps aren’t playing, but there will still be some good college football on your television.

NCAA Football: Michigan at Penn State Matthew O'Haren-USA TODAY Sports

The Maryland football team is on a bye week, but there’s still plenty out there for Maryland fans to watch on this college football Saturday.

Two conference games look interesting, as Maryland’s next two opponents are both in action. Well, at least one of them does.

Penn State vs. Michigan (3:30 p.m., ABC)

Penn State is Maryland’s second Big Ten opponent, and things aren’t looking super great for the Nittany Lions right now. After losing to Pitt and only beating Temple by one touchdown, Maryland beating Penn State in Happy Valley doesn’t look totally impossible. We’ll know more after this game. If Michigan just rolls, it’ll only add fuel to Maryland fans’ fire. Then again, Michigan’s been unstoppable so far, so maybe it wouldn’t mean that much.

And if you’re really dedicated to learning about Maryland’s first Big Ten foe:

Nevada at Purdue (noon, ESPNews, watchESPN)

OK, you probably shouldn’t watch this game. In fact, Purdue-Nevada could end up being hazardous to your health. But if you’re willing to brave the risks, this could be the best way to get a scouting report on Maryland’s first Big Ten opponent.

Other important games include Florida at Tennessee, Stanford at UCLA, Arkansas at Texas A&M and Washington at Arizona. Here’s the full schedule:
