It’s Big Ten week. It’s homecoming. It’s Maryland-Purdue from College Park.
After a Week 4 bye, DJ Durkin’s Terps are back home and in search of their fourth straight win to start the season. The Boilermakers are, by virtually all metrics, one of the worst teams in the conference, but the result of the game still counts in two columns, so this is big.
It’s a 3:30 start, and there’s a good chance the afternoon is filled with raindrops. But there will be football, and the game should be fun.
Purdue: 2-1 (0-0 Big Ten)
Maryland: 3-0 (0-0 Big Ten)
All-time series: Maryland leads, 1-0 (only previous meeting in 2006 Champs Sports Bowl)
Odds: Maryland is favored by 10.5 points
