Maryland Terrapins vs Ohio State Buckeyes 11/09/2019
For the Terrapins, checking a four-game skid is the first order of business. Unfortunately, facing a streaking Ohio State may not render that desired result. Maryland Terrapins are coming off a loss to Michigan last week. While they tried to dictate the tempo and control the ball, the Terrapins still fell short of getting a win. Maryland is expected to maintain its running game with Anthnoy McFarland Jr. and Javon Leake. Both may find it rough this time around facing one of the nation’s top defenses. The Terrapins also need to figure out their quarterback situation. They have been alternating with Josh Jackson and Lance LeGendre in recent games. Whoever starts, the Terrapins offensive machine hinges on that guy.
Players to watch: J. Jackson QB 79 CMP 159 ATT 1,065 YDS 49.7 CMP% 6.7 AVG 80 LNG 10 TD 5 INT; J. Leake RB 75 ATT 581 YDS 7.7 AVG 64 LNG; A. McFarland Jr. RB 90 ATT 438 YDS 4.9 AVG 80 LNG; D. Demus Jr. WR 32 REC 491 YDS 15.3 AVG 80 LNG; C. Okonkwo WR 18 REC 190 YDS 10.6 AVG 23 LNG
