Maryland football’s home game against No. 2 Michigan on Saturday will kick off at noon and air on FOX, it was announced last Saturday.
Saturday will mark Maryland’s fifth game on national television this season. They played at noon on FOX once prior this season, a 37-17 loss at Ohio State.
Maryland clinched bowl eligibility this past weekend when Jack Howes nailed a field goal as time expired to secure a 13-10 win over Nebraska. Michigan, on the other hand, remained undefeated with a convincing 24-15 at Penn State.
The Terps lost by just seven points at Michigan last season, but have only played a one-possession game with the Wolverines just once before — when they beat Michigan in 2014.
The Wolverines will be without head coach Jim Harbaugh this Saturday as he serves a suspension related to alleged sign-stealing by his staff. Harbaugh was barred by the Big Ten from coaching on the sidelines for the rest of the regular season.
FOX will also broadcast its weekly Big Noon Kickoff pregame show from College Park. The show will air live from LaPlata Beach, located beside residence halls near the north side of SECU Stadium.
