No. 4 Michigan gets wake up call, survives upset scare from Maryland
4 Michigan got a bit of a wake-up call on Saturday but was still able to come away with a win. But in the end, Michigan was able to withstand a strong effort from the Terps and emerge with a 34-27 victory. In the second half, Michigan started to get some pressure on Maryland QB Taulia Tagovailoa and McCarthy got into a better rhythm. For Michigan, now 4-0, there is plenty to work on with a trip to Iowa coming next weekend and games against Big Ten East foes like Penn State, Michigan State and Ohio State on the horizon. Maryland, meanwhile, drops to 3-1 but has the looks of a potentially dangerous team as the Big Ten schedule progresses.wftv.com

The former Colorado coach started his career as a graduate assistant for Saban at Michigan State in 1997. The onside kick was recovered by Michigan State running back Connor Heyward. “State fans and former players and everyone deserve the brand of football that we were able to show out there," Tucker said.
