So far, Nebraska is 2-0 in the all-time series though the Huskers and Terrapins have not faced off since the 2019 season. Maryland began turning things around under Mike Locksley in 2021 while Matt Rhule is in his first season with the program.
As for this year’s matchup, Nebraska brings in a strong defense to try and limit the Terps, but there are some offensive issues for the Huskers. Starting QB Heinrich Haarberg most recently was tagged for 3 turnovers in a loss to Michigan State and now has 6 interceptions on the season.
Maryland, meanwhile, is mired in its own skid with a 4-game losing streak. After looking at a lock for a bowl game with a 5-0 start, Locksley’s team now needs one win in the final 3 weeks to get to the postseason.
