Troubles in college football are common. Honestly, it’s part of the game, and it can be expected every week over the course of a regular season long. Marshall stunned Notre Dame, Kentucky went on the road and brought down Florida, Appalachian State erupted for massive disruption at Texas A&M — all coming in the second week. Maryland (3-0) travels to Ann Arbor to face No. 4 Michigan (3-0) in the Big Ten opener for both teams.
“My bold prediction, and the biggest surprise this week is: Maryland will beat Michigan,” McFadden said. I’m saying it. Believe it. I’m on his side. I support him. I think this is a trap game for Michigan. They’ve been constantly outsmarting the teams they’re supposed to beat, and controlling them. But this Maryland team is a cheat ball club. [Taulia] Tagoviloa was very efficient and accurate with football, completing more than 70% of his passes. Roman Humby It was amazing. Great game maker in the background. They’re going to do some plays against Michigan. And we don’t really know how good this Michigan team is because they’ve never been challenged. They are not challenged at all.
“So this is a potential trap game, but more importantly, this is a nagging alert. Arches will happen on Saturday. Maximum arches have happened in Ann Arbor. This is my bold expectation. This is my biggest disappointment this weekend. Maryland beats Michigan” .
The 2021 season brought Michigan back into the national dialogue with a win over Ohio State, the Big Ten Title and a College Football Playoff berth.
To McFadden’s credit, Michigan has played a smooth no-conference schedule featuring Colorado, Hawaii, and Ocon. The only bump in the road for the Wolverines so far occurred in last Saturday’s win over UConn when the quarterback was back up. Cady McNamara He injured his leg, which will keep him out of action for a few weeks. Although JJ McCarthy was called a rookie before McNamara was hit, the Wolverines’ depth of field took a big hit.
On the other hand, Maryland got away with a slim 27-20 victory over SMU last week. Tagovailoa 17 of 23 was effective for 214 yards and a pair of touchdowns after averaging over 350 yards through the air in the first two games of the season. The quarterback recently spoke about the challenges his team faces against the Big Ten title holders Wolverines. Maryland enters as underdogs 17 points.
