Maryland Terrapins Football Schedule Analysis: The Terps aren’t starting out with a gimme, but at least the West Virginia game is at home before getting the break agains Howard. Kent State will at least be entertaining before diving into the Big Ten schedule the rest of the way.

There’s no Wisconsin on the schedule and Northwestern isn’t around this time, but playing Iowa isn’t easy and the Minnesota and Illinois games are on the road. Ohio State is alway away from College Park, but the Penn State and Michigan games are at home.

Maryland Terrapins Football Schedule Best Case Scenario: There’s no problem with West Virginia to start and the win over Illinois kicks start the season on the way to a 4-0 September.

An upset home win over Iowa sets the tone for the Ohio State game, and even with a loss, there’s a bounce-back after getting a bye week. Splitting between Penn State and Michigan helps the team finish in the top three in the East.

Maryland Terrapins Football Schedule Worst Case Scenario: Losing to West Virginia and dropping the Illinois game on the road starts the season with a thud. Dealing wit Iowa and Ohio State don’t make anything better. There are a few upsets along the way – maybe Indiana and maybe at Rutgers – but it’s still a losing season.
