No. 3 @ Ohio State (Oct. 10)
Ohio State was the first Big Ten contest for Maryland a year ago.
Unfortunately for the Terps, the Buckeyes threw their weight around in College Park. Quarterback J.T. Barrett tossed three first half touchdown passes as Ohio State jumped out to a 31-10 lead on Maryland. Brown struggled under center and backup Caleb Rowe saw some time against the would-be national champions, but didn’t fare much better as he tossed three interceptions.
While it’s going to take a perfect gameplan and a few fortunate bounces for Maryland to win in Columbus, it’s still a chance to play one of the most storied programs in college football. For that alone, this will be one to look forward to for any program.
