The kickoff time and broadcast network for next weekend’s game featuring the Maryland Terrapins and the Michigan State Spartans has now been set. MSU will square off with Maryland at 4 p.m. in Spartan Stadium. The game will air on the FOX network.
The Michigan State-Maryland game scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 13 in Spartan Stadium will start at 4 p.m., the Big Ten Conference announced on Saturday night. The game will be televised on FOX.— Michigan State Football (@MSU_Football) November 7, 2021
The two teams did not face each other last year when the game scheduled in College Park was canceled due to COVID-19 protocols, and then the later matchup during “Champions Week” was also canceled due to the same reason
Michigan State leads the all-time series with Maryland nine games to two. MSU is 5-1 versus the Terrapins since they joined the Big Ten conference, with the only loss coming at Maryland in the disastrous 2016 season. Prior to 2014, the two teams had not met since 1950.
Maryland (5-4, 2-4 in conference play) is coming off of a 17-point home loss to Penn State. The Terrapins started the season 4-0 with wins over West Virginia and Illinois, but have lost four of the last five games, all to ranked Big Ten teams.
The Spartans (8-1, 5-1 in conference play) are coming off their first loss of the season at Purdue and are looking to right the ship. MSU still controls its own destiny in the Big Ten East and in the race for a New Year’s Six bowl game and the College Football Playoff.
