MI redshirt freshman QB Brandon Peters completed 9-of-18 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 35-10 victory over Maryland. Their bowl hopes were all but dashed and the remaining schedule promised a string of games like their discouraging 35-10 loss to MI on a gloomy late Saturday afternoon at Maryland Stadium.

Sure, desperate times call for desperate measures, but faking a punt deep in your own territory early in the second quarter when the game is not close to being out of hand is simply a prescription for the game getting there even faster. He led them down the field in the third quarter with a right mix of run and pass plays. And then there was a blocked punt and another quick touchdown and you know the rest.

Penalties once again were an issue for Maryland football, and a big pass play by Wolverines Quarterback Brandon Peters to Running Back Karan Higdon and a 15-yard roughing the passer penalty led to a touchdown drive. After Jaquille Veii gained just 3 yards and turned the ball over to MI, the Wolverines immediately scored on the 33-yard pass from Peters to Gentry.

In the second half, Maryland scored on a 20-yard field goal by Henry Darmstadter and a 10-yard pass from Brand to Jacobs.

Maryland's only touchdown came from a Ryan Brand-Taivon Jacobs 10 yard connection.

The Michigan Wolverines got out to a hot start in this game scoring the first two touchdowns of the game in the first half.

Maryland: This loss means that the Terrapins would have to win their final two games - both against ranked teams, Michigan State and Penn State - to be guaranteed a bowl appearance and a chance at their first winning season since 2014.

Maryland: The Terrapins wrap up their road schedule at Michigan State, ranked 13th before Saturday's 48-3 loss to Ohio State.
