COLLEGE PARK, Md. — It wasn’t pretty, but neither was Week 12 last year. Regardless, Michigan football entered SECU Stadium at 10-0 and is leaving 11-0 with a chance to make its third-straight Big Ten Championship Game next week if it can beat Ohio State.
Maryland made it difficult, however, and like last year’s game against Illinois, it took everything the Wolverines had to escape with a victory. Whether it was the two safeties or the punt block, defense and special teams carried the way.

The Wolverines have been victorious in 23 straight Big Ten games dating to 2021, the longest streak in program history and the third-longest in Big Ten history.
The Big Ten Conference does not recognize the 2021 or 2022 Big Ten championship games as conference matchups, so U-M is at 21 straight Big Ten wins. That figure surpassed the previous record, a mark held by Gary Moeller’s 1990-92 teams (19).
Michigan has been victorious in 27 consecutive regular-season games, the third-longest stretch in Big Ten history. Only the 1901-03 Michigan teams, which won 28 straight regular season games, have won more in program history.
The Maize and Blue have now gone 11-0 in back-to-back season for the first time in Michigan Football history. It is just the sixth season…
