MM 10.14: Maryland football opens as 5-point underdog to Indiana

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

NCAA Football: Maryland at Indiana Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

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.
