With Maryland clinching bowl eligibility on Saturday and sitting at 6-2 with its hardest stretch of games approaching, the Terps can finally rest as they have a bye this weekend.
The rest comes at a perfect time, as Maryland deals with injuries to key position players, including quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa, who did not play against Northwestern due to an MCL sprain.
Head coach Mike Locksley said Tuesday that Tagovailoa is expected to play at Wisconsin on Nov. 5 after the bye.
After Wisconsin, Maryland plays at Penn State and then hosts Ohio State, two games in which Maryland will be underdogs. The Terps then finish their season at home against Rutgers.
