This is the sixth meeting between the two schools with the Hoosiers leading the all-time series, 4-1. In last year’s encounter, Indiana posted a 42-36 victory over Maryland.
The Hoosiers are coming off a 17-9 loss at Michigan State last Saturday. The Takeaways from the game was Peyton Ramsey completing 22 out of 34 attempts for 158 passing yards and Chase Dutra’s 14 tackles including 6 solos. The fifth-year senior safety Dutra has tallied 39 tackles in conference games only, which ranks him fourth in the league.
The offense is led by Ramsey who has completed 103-164 collecting 973 yards, 7 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. The offensive unit is racking up 367.4 total yards of offense for 25.3 points per game. Defensively, the team is allowing 341.7 yards for 24.6 points per game.
Another strong player in the Indiana squad is fifth-year senior kicker Griffin Oakes who leads all-time record with 63 field goals and is five field goals shy of getting into the top five Big 10 list.
The Terrapins enter Saturday’s clash with a three-game losing streak as they suffered a 13-38 skid to Wisconsin last week. As usual Alex Hornibrook led the passing game for the team completing 16 of 24 for 225 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception.
The offensive unit is piling up just 329 yards of total offense with 29 points per game while the defense is allowing 439 yards for 36.7 points per game. The defensive unit needs to step up on Saturday against the Hoosiers if they want their team to keep the Bowl hopes alive.
