Michigan-Maryland preview, keys to game

1. Keep running the ball
The Michigan offensive line has played its best games in consecutive weeks. Forget that Rutgers and Minnesota aren’t at the top of the Big Ten standings. Remember that the Wolverines had struggled with consistency and execution for the first seven games. It came in flashes but the offensive line wasn’t functioning as well as it could as a five-man unit. That hasn’t been the case the last two weeks as the Wolverines have topped 300 yards rushing in both games. That kind of rushing attack is perfect for redshirt freshman quarterback Brandon Peters. He’ll probably get more chances to throw the ball this week after completing 8 of 13 passes last week for just 56 yards and 1 touchdown. The weather is expected to be cool but dry. Then again, if Michigan can average 10 yards per carry as it did against Minnesota, why would you throw it?
2. Take advantage of a bad Maryland QB situation
The Terrapins have lost their top two quarterbacks this season to injury and No. 3, sophomore Max Bortenschlager, will be a game-time decision according to head coach D.J. Durkin. Bortenschlager was injured in the fourth quarter against Rutgers, an injury that has yet to be publicly elaborated upon. No one is letting on as to what exactly is ailing Bortenschlager. If he can’t play, then sophomore walk-on Ryan Brand will get the call. Brand did lead the Terrapins on a game-tying touchdown drive last week, but facing Don Brown’s Michigan defense and all its various looks is a much taller task.
Whichever quarterback is playing, the Wolverines want to force Maryland to throw the ball to beat them. Just as a strong running game will benefit Michigan’s Peters, so too will it aid Bortenschlager and/or Brand. Maryland is fourth in the Big Ten, averaging 172.6 yards per game rushing. Junior Ty Johnson and sophomore Lorenzo Harrison are running backs capable of making life difficult on Michigan.
3. Take the attitude on the road
Michigan played one good half on the road at Purdue, although it was good enough to pull away for a 28-10 win. One good quarter at Penn State resulted in a 42-13 loss. The Wolverines need to figure out how to take the performances they’ve put on the last two weeks with them to College Park. The execution doesn’t have to be perfect, but it has to be consistent and resilient. If something negative happens, brush it aside and move on to the next play. That’s how they can take care of business against a team they should handle. That’s how they can get ready for a much stiffer test next week at Wisconsin.
