The Maryland football team will host No. 3 Ohio State on Nov. 14 at Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium in a game that will kick at 3:30 p.m. and air on Big Ten Network, the conference announced Monday.
The Terps (1-1) are coming off a 45-44 overtime victory over Minnesota this past Friday. Quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa completed 26 of 35 passes for 394 yards and accounted for five touchdowns in the win. The sophomore earned Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week honors for his performance.
Maryland nearly upset Ohio State the last time the teams met inside Maryland Stadium in 2018. Despite running back Anthony McFarland Jr. rushing for 298 yards and a pair of touchdowns, the Buckeyes escaped with a 52-51 overtime victory.
Maryland travels to Penn State (0-2) this Saturday for its Big Ten East opener. Kickoff is set for 3:30 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on Big Ten Network and the Maryland Sports Radio Network.
QB honors: Tagovailoa was selected as the Maxwell Award Player of the Week, the Maxwell Football Club announced on Tuesday. The honor is Tagovailoa’s fourth of the week.
Tagovailoa’s 394 passing yards were the 10th most in a single game in school history and the most since Danny O’Brien passed for 417 yards against N.C. State in 2010. The sophomore added 59 rushing yards, including a 39-yard rushing touchdown in the first quarter.
