The No. 7 Michigan State Spartans (8-1) are looking for a statement performance this Saturday when East Division foe the Maryland Terrapins (5-4) come to East Lansing for a 4 p.m. EST kickoff. The Terps bring a dangerous pass attack to town that will likely look to repeat the dismantling of MSU’s secondary the Purdue Boilermakers (6-3) performed.

Michigan State will look to bounce back ahead of a trip to Columbus, Ohio next week by extending the active win streak over Maryland, but can ill afford to look past the upcoming opponent. The Terps have the third ranked passing attack in the Big Ten, averaging 316.1 yards per game, with a 8.1 yards per catch average, good for fourth in the league.

The game marks the 12th meeting all-time between the two programs. It will also mark the first time the East Division foes will face off against each other since 2019 after both the original and then rescheduled matchups were cancelled last season due to COVID-19 outbreaks among the Maryland roster. The Spartans are 9-2 all-time against the Terrapins, and hold a 5-1 record since UMD joined the Big Ten in 2014. MSU is also 6-1 all-time in East Lansing against Maryland.
