Maryland-Wisconsin: Time, TV channel, watch online for Week 8 game (October 21, 2017)

Maryland and Wisconsin play in what should be another big game for the Terps on Saturday, October 21, 2017. Below, find everything you need to know, from the game time, TV channel and online streaming information to a game preview.

Maryland looked lost last week in a 37-21 defeat at the hands of Northwestern. This Wisconsin team should be one of Maryland’s toughest opponents this season. The No. 5 Badgers enter this game undefeated and fresh off a 17-9 win over Purdue, a school that could end up as the their stiffest competition in the Big Ten West. This game is in Madison, and Maryland’s recent results against ranked conference foes don’t paint a promising picture for this one.

Maryland-Wisconsin: Here’s a game preview with everything you need to know.

Wisconsin isn’t just on its customary under-the-radar season. This team looks a bit different from past iterations. For starters, advanced stats love Wisconsin this season. Bill Connelly’s S&P+ has been high on the Badgers all season, and their No. 6 ranking there matches up with their No. 5 ranking in the AP Top 25.

Wisconsin started the season tied with Utah State 10-10 at halftime. Paul Chryst’s team proceeded to score 49 unanswered points.  Since then, Northwestern and Purdue have been the only teams to keep things close against the Badgers.

Wisconsin’s winning in relatively Wisconsin fashion. The team has an absolute workhorse in freshman RB Jonathan Taylor, who had is third 200-plus yard game against Purdue. Pair that with a shutdown defense that ranks fifth overall according to S&P+, including ninth against the run. QB Alex Hornibrook will probably never get enough credit, but he’s averaging 9.7 yards per attempt this season with 11 touchdowns to 6 interceptions. He’s exceeding the “game-manager” label everyone put on him last season. Hornibrook won’t have WR Jazz Peavy for this game, but he still TE Troy Fumagalli.

Meanwhile, Maryland’s fallen on tough times. After impressing against Minnesota, third-string QB Max Bortenschlager was simply overmatched against Ohio State in Week 6, throwing for just 16 yards on 12 attempts. He looked better against Northwestern, but teams are still loading up on the run and daring Maryland to throw. Maryland’s rushing attack, its biggest strength last year, has suffered as a result. RB Ty Johnson was once averaging over 15 yards per rush earlier this season. That’s down to 7.2, and in the Terps’ three losses he’s averaged only 3.1. Against a Wisconsin defense that has only allowed on team to run for more than 3.1 yards per carry this season, that could spell big trouble.
