After its comeback effort against Indiana fell just short, Maryland football has just two more shots at bowl eligibility and will be heavy underdogs in both. First for the Terps (5-5, 3-4 Big Ten), the No. 9 Ohio State Buckeyes come to College Park.
It will be another noon kickoff for Maryland, the conference announced Sunday. It will be the ninth noon start of the season for the Terps, who are 3-5 (2-3) in the time slot, dropping three straight.
After losing its only game of the season, to date, against Purdue on Oct. 20, the Buckeyes (9-1, 6-1) have won their last two. Ohio State comes to Maryland Stadium on the heels of a 26-6 win over Michigan State, knocking the Spartans out of the latest AP top 25 poll. The Terps are 4-2 at home this season, but open as 17-point underdogs, per OddsShark.
Maryland will try to notch its first win over Ohio State since joining the Big Ten on Nov. 17 at noon ET, airing on ABC.
