We’re still on cloud nine after an epic comeback win over Notre Dame in South Bend. The Buckeyes showed resilience and poise and proved that they are among the best teams in the nation.
However, in college football teams can’t live in the past. After a bye week, Ohio State now turns its attention to Maryland. The Terps boast a high-powered offense led by senior quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa.
Maryland averages over 38 points per game and is holding opponents to 13 points per contest. But Mike Lockley’s club hasn’t faced the likes of OSU this season. Can Ohio State recover from the emotional battle against Notre Dame and hold off the upset-minded Terrapins?
Time to get ready for Maryland week!

Ohio State Potential Game Plan for Victory
This isn’t your grandfather’s Maryland team. Mike Locksley has slowly turned the Terps into a respectable program. The Terrapin are currently undefeated and looking for more.
When you talk about Maryland, the conversation begins with quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa. The senior QB is having an outstanding season thus far, throwing for over 1,400 yards with 13 touchdowns to only three interceptions. Tagovailoa has only been sacked three times this season thanks to excellent protection from the line.
Ohio State doesn’t have many sacks to boast of but it ranks the highest on quarterback pressures. The Buckeyes cannot allow Tagovailoa to become comfortable in the pocket. He’s simply too good.
Offensively, Ohio State will want to establish the run first…
