Maryland vs. Nebraska preview:
Maryland started the season on a four-game win streak and looked like they were going to be players in the Big Ten. Then the Big Ten schedule kicked in and the Terrapins have lost five of their lost six. In their last two games, the Terrapins were outscored 121-6. Granted, those games came against Michigan and Ohio State, but getting outscored by a 115 point margin? That's embarrassing.
After starting the season with seven straight wins, the Cornhuskers came back down to Earth with losses against Wisconsin and Ohio State. The loss to the Buckeyes was an embarrassment to the Nebraska program. The Huskers scored just three points, while being outscored by the second largest margin in the history of college football in a matchup between two top-10 teams.
This will be the first matchup between these two teams.
Maryland vs. Nebraska prediction:
Nebraska is tied with Wisconsin atop the Big Ten West, but the Badgers hold the head-to-head advantage. The Cornhuskers need Wisconsin to drop a game and they need to win their final two games for a spot in the Big Ten Championship game.
Nebraska should be able to win its final two games against Maryland and then Iowa next week. Starting quarterback Tommy Armstrong Jr. may not play in the game, but the Huskers running attack will go off in this game against a poor Maryland run defense.
