Maryland vs Virginia Tech New Era Pinstripe Bowl Preview

Maryland needed a win over Rutgers to get here, and it needs a win to make it a promising offseason for head coach Mike Locksley.

It’s been a bit of a grind to get the program rolling, and consistency has been a huge problem, but the Terps are good at beating the teams they’re supposed to beat, and this is a Virginia Tech team they’re supposed to beat.

Virginia Tech also needed to win its final game to get here. Unlike Maryland – a program trying to keep improving under its current head coach – the reboot is coming for the Hokies with Justin Fuente fired late in the season.

The Brent Pry era isn’t starting quite yet, but future associate head coach JC Price is still around – along with the rest of the assistants – for some continuity as the interim head man.

There was a problem getting the Hokie offense going until late in the year, but the running game became a force with 200 yards or more in five of its last six games including 320 in the bowl-sealing win over Virginia.

Maryland’s run defense hasn’t been anything special, but the offense has one of the nation’s better passing attacks – averaging over 300 yards per game – to make up for it.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Maryland vs Rutgers Game Preview


Why Maryland Will Win

Get up fast and this is over.

The Rutgers offense just doesn’t do much of anything offensively – it came up with 38 on Indiana, 20 on Illinois, and 13 or fewer in other six of the last eight games.

There’s absolutely no downfield passing game for the Terps to worry about – a saving grace for a pass defense that gets bombed on way too easily.

Maryland has the offense to get going right away through the air, coming up with 350 passing yards or more in three straight games and averaging well over 300 per game on the year.

Even a ten point lead could be insurmountable, but …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 13

Why Rutgers Will Win

Rutgers has enough of a running attack to take over and make the game go its way.

Maryland’s big problem is with the pass defense, and while Rutgers won’t throw for 300 yards, just completing a few key passes here and there might be enough as long as the ground game is grinding.

The Scarlet Knights were able to run for 230 yards on Illinois, and won. It was able to run for 218 yards on Indiana, and won. They’re 4-1 this year when getting to 160 yards rushing, and Maryland allows 160 yards per game.

Control the clock, force a few takeaways, and …

NFL Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

What’s Going To Happen

The winner is going bowling. The loser isn’t … maybe.

There probably won’t be enough bowl eligible teams, and Rutgers is close to the top of the Academic Progress Rate list. So if you’re a fan of Cal, or Texas, or Florida, root for the Scarlet Knights to knock Maryland out of the mix.

Maryland has the explosion and the offense Rutgers can’t find, but can it get things going just enough to force this into any sort of a mini-shootout?

Not really, but it’ll get just enough out of its offense to come up with the two second half scoring drives it’ll need to get out alive and with a sixth win.

The Terp defense will hold firm.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Michigan vs Maryland Game Preview


Why Michigan Will Win

The Maryland defense is having a few issues.

It doesn’t do enough to take the ball away, it doesn’t come up with third down stops, and the pass defense isn’t strong enough.

Michigan is more consistent than sensational. It can hit the big play at the right time – it did just that late against Penn State – but it’s goal it to start rolling and keep on pounding away.

The running game has been a wee bit off over the last few weeks, but it should get going for close to 200 yards in this, the passing attack is moving the chains, and most importantly this week, the other side of the ball gets the job done against the pass.

Maryland can sort of run, but it has to throw to get things going. Michigan has yet to give up a 300-yard day, it doesn’t allow a whole lot of deep shots, and …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 12

Why Maryland Will Win

Really, what quarterback has Michigan faced so far?

Penn State’s Sean Clifford is fine, and Jahan Dotson and the receiving corps are great, and the Wolverines allowed 223 yards last week. That’s about it for the solid passers.

Maryland has to keep things moving with its midrange throws. Taulia Tagovailoa might have a few issues with picks, but he’s been bombing away, hitting close to 70% of his throws on the year with close to 1,200 yards and five scores over the last three games.

As long as he’s able to hit his quick shots and get the ball out of his hands in a hurry, the O will move.

NFL Expert Picks: CFN Week 11

What’s Going To Happen

Yeah, the Maryland offense will get its passing yards, but the defense won’t be able to handle the grind.

Michigan will seem like it always has the ball – it should control the clock for well over 35 minutes – and slow and steady will win the race. It’s not going to be the most impressive of performances overall – at least until late – but it’ll be the win the team needs to set up the showdown next week against the Buckeyes for the Big Ten East title.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Michigan State vs Maryland Game Preview


Why Michigan State Will Win

Maryland is good against the bad teams, and AWFUL against the good ones – at least since the 30-24 win over West Virginia to start the season.

There’s no shame in losing to Ohio State, or Minnesota, or Iowa or Penn State, but the Terps were collectively annihilated in all four games by a combined score of 182-61, and they slipped by Illinois and had no problems getting by Howard, or Indiana, or Kent State.

There’s no running game for the Spartans to worry about, and the defense has been getting crushed over the last six games allowing way over 400 yards in each one.

This is the game to get the ground attack back and rolling. However …
College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 11

Why Maryland Will Win

The Michigan State pass defense is about to get hammered.

There were issues here and there before the last few weeks – WKU throws on everyone, so the 488 yards weren’t a big deal, and Miami’s D’Eriq King went off – but the Spartans have struggled allowing 942 passing yards over the last two games.

No, Maryland’s offense isn’t consistent, but Taulia Tagovailoa has been good, the passing game should hit 300 yards, and the O should keep the pressure on, but …

What’s Going To Happen

Kenneth Walker is about to have a day.

The Michigan State defense will once again look mediocre, but Walker will run for well over 100 yards, the Spartan offense will take over as the game goes on, and Maryland will misfire just enough – helped by three turnovers – to let the game get out of hand in the second half.

All of the CFN Fearless Predictions

Indiana vs Maryland Game Preview


Why Indiana Will Win

Oh Maryland …

We saw this at the beginning of 2019, and it happened for a bit in the weird 2020. The team rocked out of the gate, came up with some nice wins, and then it all fell painfully apart.

Now it’s happening again.

The Terps have yet to score more than 20 points against a Power Five team since beating West Virginia 30-24 in the opener. The passing game has fallen flat, the running game hasn’t hit 100 yards in any of its last three games, and the run defense is getting progressively worse.

The biggest problem, though, is the turnover margin. The Terps were +5 over the first two games and are a -12 in the five games since with no takeaways in the last three outings.

Speaking of not scoring …

College Football Expert Picks, CFN Week 9

Why Maryland Will Win

To be fair, playing Penn State, Michigan State, and Ohio State over the last three games was hard, Throw in the Iowa game, too, and IU has scored a grand total of 28 points in four Big Ten games.

There’s no real running game for Maryland to worry about. There’s no real offense for Maryland to worry about.

Indiana has failed to get to 400 yards in every game but the 33-31 win over WKU, there’s no downfield passing game to go along with the lack of rushing attack, and like Maryland, there’s a turnover problem – IU has yet to win the turnover margin against an FBS team.

College Football Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews, Week 9

What’s Going To Happen

It’s not like Maryland doesn’t have parts.

Taulia Tagovailoa might be past his interception problem after not giving one away against Minnesota, but he’s going to have to be the star for the Terps to pull this off.

The problem is that the Indiana defense isn’t that bad. Oh sure, it got blasted by Ohio State, but overall it held down Michigan State to 241 yards, kept Cincinnati in check, and only allowed 303 yards to Iowa.

Indiana lost to the five teams it was supposed to, beat the two teams it was supposed to, and now, even though it’s on the road, it’s going against a Maryland team it should beat. The defense will take over.
