MI thwarts Maryland after big second quarter

MI thwarts Maryland after big second quarter

The Terrapins (4-6, 2-5) have lost five of six.

Peters threw touchdown passes of 33 yards to Zach Gentry and 3 yards to Sean McKeon.

Sure, desperate times call for desperate measures, but faking a punt deep in your own territory early in the second quarter when the game is not close to being out of hand is simply a prescription for the game getting there even faster.

So, what are you supposed to do when you're down to your fourth quarterback (Ryan Brand) and you're pretty much overmatched at the line of scrimmage against a perennial Big Ten powerhouse? Brand was 16 for 35 for 136 yards.

The Wolverines are No. 19 in the latest AP Top 25, a week after re-entering the AP Top 25 at No.21.

The Wolverines will once again start Brandon Peters at quarterback, who took over for an ineffective John O'Korn two weeks ago.

Liam Miller: Ex-Celtic And Man Utd Midfielder In Cancer Fight
Miller was part of the Black Cats squad that won promotion to the Premier League in 2007 before he joined QPR two years later. Ex-Ireland team mate Noel Hunt tweeted: "Such sad news about my old room mate Liam Miller ".

In the second half, Maryland scored on a 20-yard field goal by Henry Darmstadter and a 10-yard pass from Brand to Jacobs.

After a 29-yard pass to Taivon Jacobs was overturned by replay, MI blocked Wade Lees' punt. To reach the conference title game, however, they'd need to beat both Wisconsin and Ohio State and get some tiebreaker luck.

Michigan: The Wolverines hope to make a statement on road against the No. 8 Badgers, who were unbeaten heading into Saturday's game against Iowa.

Maryland football lost to the Michigan Wolverines once again but this lost wasn't as bad as the one past year.

MI seeks its third straight victory when the Wolverines go on the road to take on Maryland.
