It is hard to believe that after this week’s game against Penn State, there will be only one more home game the rest of the 2020 football season for the Michigan Wolverines. Now, we know when it will kick off.

The announcement was made on Monday afternoon that Michigan’s game against the Maryland Terrapins on Dec. 5 in Ann Arbor will be a 3:30 p.m. ET kickoff and be televised via Big Ten Network.

Like the Rutgers series, Michigan has won all five games it has played against Maryland since Jim Harbaugh was hired in 2015. The lone loss came in 2014 in the last year of the Brady Hoke era. The Wolverines hold an all-time series advantage of 8-1 against the Terrapins.

However, this will be a tough task than most seasons for Michigan with a young and rising offense that Maryland possesses seemingly getting better every week. However, the program has not played its last two scheduled games due to a COVID-19 outbreak within the program. We will have to wait and see what becomes of that heading into next week.

Looking at the rest of the schedule, Michigan’s season finale at Ohio State will be a noon kickoff televised nationally via FOX from Columbus. Then comes the crossover game on the last week of the year with the opponent to be determined. If the season ended today, the Wolverines would be taking on Purdue in the final game of the season.
