Michigan’s success has come as a result of a balanced offense and a stout defense.
Coach Mark Turgeon called Bender the “biggest surprise” on the team.
The Terps expect a breakout season from the sophomore.
Turgeon is 114-59 (.659) through his first five seasons, the most wins in program history over that span.
This policy would strengthen recruiting and further inform the Terps fan base.
The sixth-year coach has done more teaching in practices this season.
The Terps relied on their run game while mixing in a few pass plays.
Quarterback Perry Hills returned as the starter after sitting out with a shoulder injury against Minnesota.
The Terps made the rankings despite losing four starters from last year’s team.
Both squads enter Saturday’s game on losing streaks.
