Maryland-Indiana series history
Indiana has won four of the five meetings with Maryland. However, the first two games were back in 1934 and 1935. Indiana won both of those games, 17-14 and then 13-7.
The programs didn’t meet again until Maryland joined the Big Ten Conference. In 2014, the Terrapins crushed the Hoosiers in Bloomington, Ind., 37-15. But Indiana rallied to win the next two games. In 2015, the Hoosiers won 47-28. Last season, Indiana again hit the 40-point mark in a 42-36 win.
The Hoosiers dominated on the ground, rushing 57 times for 414 yards and six touchdowns. Three Indiana players reached the 100-yard mark in the thriller. Though Devine Redding led with 130 yards and 1 touchdown, Tyler Natee added 111 yards and a score and Zander Diamont rushed for 104 yards and scored two touchdowns. Both teams later reached bowl games. Maryland played in the Quick Lane Bowl and Indiana played in the Foster Farms Bowl.
Maryland got 142 rushing yards from Ty Johnson and 248 passing yards from Perry Hills, but it wasn’t enough to beat the Hoosiers.
Indiana is 3-3 overall (0-3 Big Ten) so far this season. Last week, the Hoosiers pushed Michigan into overtime before falling 27-20. Indiana next plays ranked Michigan State this upcoming Saturday before getting traveling to Maryland for Week 9.
Maryland is 3-3 this season and 1-2 in the Big Ten. Despite a deluge of quarterback injuries, the Terrapins are still in contention for a bowl game. But the schedule gets tough, as they still have to play Wisconsin, Michigan, Michigan State and Penn State.
Before getting Indiana, Maryland as a road game against Wisconsin on October 21.
