It’s been more than 24 hours since Maryland football was blown out 40-14 against Purdue in West Lafayette, Indiana. And according to head coach Mike Locksley’s 24-hour rule, it’s time to move on to the next scheduled game.
This week, Maryland (3-3, 1-2 Big Ten) hosts Indiana (4-2, 1-2), and Vegas Insider has the Hoosiers as a five-point favorite over the Terps, as of Sunday night. The over/under is 57.
This line may change, however, because the odds are constantly shifting throughout the week.
Indiana is coming off a 35-0 win against Rutgers, the Hoosiers’ second shutout of the season. Indiana limited Scarlet Knight quarterback Johnny Langan, who went 13-25 for 163 yards and two interceptions against Maryland, to 5-13 for one yard, which is the most completions for the fewest yards since 2000, according to Reddit.
In his second game back from an undisclosed injury, Indiana redshirt freshman quarterback Michael Penix Jr. completed 20-of-29 passes form 282 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.
Although the college football season is only at Week 7, this week’s matchup is crucial for Maryland’s bowl game eligibility. The Terps are three wins away from qualifying for a bowl game and are arriving to a stretch of four weeks to wrap up the season that includes Michigan, Ohio State and Michigan State.
Kickoff between Maryland and Indiana is slated for 3:30 p.m. at Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium.

College basketball insider Jon Rothstein was in College Park on Friday scouting Maryland men’s basketball. Here are a few of his takeaways.
Early prediction on Maryland's starting five: Anthony Cowan, Eric Ayala, Aaron Wiggins, Ricky Lindo, Jalen Smith.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) October 11, 2019
Will be interesting to see how deep Mark Turgeon's rotation goes when Maryland gets fully healthy. Terps are loaded with options. Can play big or small. Would be shocked if they play less than nine when Big Ten play begins.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) October 11, 2019
Aaron Wiggins has added 10-15 pounds of muscle since last season. Looks like an NBA wing physically. Primed to explode for Maryland.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) October 11, 2019
Palpable Buzz at Maryland regarding freshman PF Donta Scott. Rugged, tough, and downright nasty. Going to be in the Terps' rotation.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) October 11, 2019
Eric Ayala is down 10 pounds since the end of last season. Is noticeably leaner and quicker. Made conditioning a priority.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) October 11, 2019

Some people may question whether or not former Maryland guard Melo Trimble should be in the NBA or not. But on Sunday night, he dropped 22 points and six assists against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Many have doubted whether Melo Trimble has NBA-level talent. But it sure looked like he belonged in the league playing against the LA Clippers with the NBL's Melbourne United today.— Lila Bromberg (@lilabbromberg) October 13, 2019
