Michigan Players To Watch:

Offense: Running Back – Blake Corum – Senior

Corum had his best game of the season last week and looked like the Corum from 2022, as he ran for 145 yards on 26 carries for an average of 5.6 yards a carry. The Wolverines will need that Corum this week to help lead the offense. Corum has also recorded at least one rushing touchdown on the ground in every game to help lead the country in rushing touchdowns with 18.

Defense: Defensive Back – Keon Sabb – Sophomore

Sabb will be relied upon to help Mike Sainristil keep the top-ranked passing attack in the Big Ten at bay. The defense was locked down against the pass, and Sabb will need to step up and force Maryland to run and let the Wolverines’ front seven make stops.

Bottom Line: One More for Michigan Before the Game

This is the game I was most nervous about this season because it’s on the road right between their two biggest games; Michigan should not underestimate Maryland and look ahead to next week against Ohio State. Harbaugh may not be on the sideline for this one, but if they played like last week, the conversation will start in the second half about the game against Ohio State the following weekend.
