NCAA Football: Minnesota at Maryland Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

When Maryland football heads to Ann Arbor in a little less than two weeks, the game will be broadcast on ABC, the first time the Terps will have played on the network since 2014.

Maryland will be 3-1 coming off a well-timed bye week. Michigan, on the other hand, is also 3-1 after losing the season opener to now-No. 8 Notre Dame. The Wolverines, No. 14 in this week’s AP poll, will travel to Northwestern this weekend before the Terps come to town. This would likely be a battle of ranked teams had Maryland not stumbled against Temple, but instead will be an opportunity for the Terps to beat a second ranked opponent as big underdogs this season.

In 2014, Maryland beat Michigan in Ann Arbor, 23-16. Since then, though, the Wolverines are 3-0 with a 122-13 scoring advantage. One scheduling silver lining for the Terps is that Michigan plays No. 15 Wisconsin the following week, so there’s the possibility of looking ahead.

The game will kick off at noon.
