The Michigan defense and offense are both clicking, and the Maryland Terrapins fell to the Wolverines 35-10. Michigan had a 28-0 lead at halftime and never looked back. The game lost its edge after the big league took place, and Maryland started stopping Michigan’s offense and finding success against their defense in the second half, but Michigan’s lead was too big to overcome.

One of the biggest question marks coming out of this game will be Karan Higdon leaving with an ankle injury. All in all, a win is a win and Michigan will be playing back to back tough games against Wisconsin and Ohio State.

Game Recap

First Quarter

On Michigan’s second drive of the game, Henry Poggi recorded his first touchdown of the season from two yards out. Michigan leads 7-0

Second Quarter

Chris Evans punches a touchdown in from the one yard line. Michigan leads 14-0

David Long intercepts a pass in the end zone and takes it back nearly 70 yards to put Michigan’s offense in excellent field position. On the first play of the drive, Brandon Peters hits Zach Gentry up the seam for a 33 yard touchdown pass. Michigan leads 21-0

Peters gets his second touchdown of the day, throwing a three yard touchdown to Sean McKeon. Michigan leads 28-0

Third Quarter

Michigan nearly goes three quarters without giving up a score, but with 19 seconds left in the third Maryland strikes for a field goal. Michigan leads 28-3

Fourth Quarter

Michigan hasn’t scored since the second quarter and the defense has been giving up good chunks of yards to Maryland. The Terrapins get their first touchdown on a 10 yard touchdown reception by Taivon Jacobs. Michigan leads 28-10

It was getting a little ugly for the Michigan offensive line, with the run game being stalled too often in the second half. However, Chris Evans scampers for a 17 yard touchdown run. A well deserved second touchdown on the day for Evans. Michigan leads 35-10

FINAL SCORE: MICHIGAN 35 MARYLAND 10
