Maryland football has another 3:30 p.m. kickoff on Nov. 11, this time against Michigan on the Big Ten Network, the program announced Monday.
The Terps (4-4, 2-3 Big Ten) are fresh off a 42-39 Homecoming win over Indiana, and are gearing up to take on Rutgers in Piscataway. Meanwhile Michigan (6-2, 3-2) hosts Minnesota Saturday night, after taking down the Scarlet Knights last weekend, 35-14.
The Terps have gone 1-2 against the Wolverines since moving to the Big Ten. Maryland took the first matchup in 2014, but Michigan has won the two subsequent meetings, including a 56-point blowout last season.
Maryland is quickly getting used to that mid-afternoon time slot. This matchup against the Wolverines will mark the Terps’ third straight 3:30 p.m. kickoff and sixth mid-afternoon start in the season’s first 10 games.
