Featured Game | Michigan Wolverines vs. Maryland Terrapins
Why Michigan can cover
The Wolverines love to establish the run game. This group has the maulers on the offensive line to bully opposing defenses. Michigan is currently second in the conference in rushing (231.3). Junior running back Blake Corum is the workhorse in the backfield for this unit. Corum owns terrific vision and will quickly burst through the open hole.
The Virginia native has light feet and superb lateral quickness. He’s presently first on the team with 34 carries for 235 yards and seven touchdowns. Corum is also averaging 6.9 yards per carry. In the win over UConn last week, he recorded 12 carries for 71 yards with a whopping five touchdowns.
Why Maryland can cover
The Terrapins have plenty of playmakers across this offense. Freshman running back Roman Hemby is leading the Maryland rushing attack. Hemby has shown good patience and breakaway speed to evade defenders. The Maryland native is leading the team with 32 carries for 294 yards and three touchdowns. He’s also averaging 9.2 yards per carry. Last week, he had 16 carries for a career-high 151 yards and a score.
Maryland’s offense has some pass-catchers who can stretch the field vertically. Junior receiver Rakim Jarrett has secure hands with long arms to snag the ball over defenders. Jarrett is a smooth catch-and-run threat with solid deep speed. He’s leading the team with 196 yards on 11 catches and one touchdown. Senior receiver Jeshaun Jones is another effective weapon in the passing game. Jones knows how to get open with slippery route running and solid awareness.
