There were battlefield casualties in the war that was the Maryland vs Michigan game on Saturday.

In the end, the Wolverines quite literally took down the Terrapins, including Maryland mascot Testudo.

Apparently, the sideline isn’t a safe place for a Terrapin to be, and neither was the field on Saturday. Michigan’s Blake Corum ran over the Terps for more than 243 yards and an eventual 34-27 victory. The Michigan tailback had career highs in carries and yards, and he had 132 yards rushing and 1 touchdown at halftime.

Although Testudo was taken out on Saturday, it was a hard-fought battle and looked at one point as though Maryland may be ripe for the upset. QB Taulia Tagavailoa finished the game with 207 yards passing, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions, marching the Terrapins down the field on several campaigns.

Maryland will meet a second B1G opponent next Saturday when the Terps take on Michigan State at home.
