Last Maryland Win: Maryland lost its only matchup with Northwestern.
Last Northwestern Win: October 14, 2017- Northwestern 37-21; Northwestern running back Justin Jackson ran for 171 yards and two touchdowns while Northwestern quarterback Clayton Thorson threw for 293 yards and a touchdown.
Best Maryland Moment: October 14, 2017- Considering the fact that these teams have only played one game and it was a Maryland loss, the only real memorable moment from this matchup for Maryland was the fact that their fans successfully tossed a football, which originally cleared the net on an extra point, around the lower bowl of bleachers and all the way into the upper deck. D.J. Moore did have the best game of his Maryland career during the October 2017 matchup as he had 12 receptions for 210 yards and two touchdowns.
