Things to watch for on Maryland’s side

Keeping the momentum on the road: As cliche as it may sound, Maryland is coming off a “program-building victory” as DJ Durkin said after a win over Michigan State. However earning a Big Ten win on the road is much more difficult than earning one at home. Maryland has not won on the road in over a month (factor in the bye week and the one road loss to Penn State).

Keep running the ball!!: In their five wins this season, Maryland has averaged 289.4 rushing yards per game. In two losses this season, Maryland has a TOTAL of 300 rushing yards. Maryland’s bread and butter this season has been handing it off to Lorenzo Harrison and Ty Johnson. It is a formula that’s been working, and the Terps should stick with it.

Indiana players to watch

Quarterback Richard Lagow: Lagow has been a bit shaky lately. He has thrown three touchdowns and five interceptions in the past three games, all Indiana losses. Despite that, Indiana probably won’t be afraid to throw the ball (59 pass attempts last week against Northwestern). Maryland has to be prepared.

Linebacker Tegray Scales: The junior linebacker is the anchor of this defense. He has 59 tackles in his last five games and has consistently been the one to plug the run gaps for Indiana. Scales has to be marked before every play, especially with Maryland’s run-heavy offense, because Scales could feast on this matchup.
