Maryland football kicked Big Ten play off strong, with a 31-24 win on the road against Minnesota. Expectations were lowered for the Terps entering the week, having to start their third different quarterback, but sophomore Max Bortenschlager was able to lead Maryland past the Gophers for the upset.
Now, Maryland is back on the road taking on Big Ten East foe No. 10 Ohio State in Columbus. The Buckeyes are 31-point favorites in this one, so it would take a huge performance by Maryland's offense to pull of the upset. It will be interesting to see if the Terps' defense can stop senior quarterback J.T. Barrett and the Buckeyes' one-two punch in the backfield.
