Michigan ties recent record for fastest TD in B1G play with hot start vs. Maryland
Michigan is picking up right where it left off from last season as the Wolverines are off to a 4-0 start. They defeated Maryland 34-27 in a game that was closer than the experts predicted.
On the opening kickoff, Michigan recovered a fumble as the ball went off the Maryland return man’s facemask, and the Wolverines’ offense scored on the next play.
Only three seconds went off the game clock as QB J.J. McCarthy found TE Luke Schoonmaker in the end zone to give the Wolverines the early lead.

McCarthy was 18-of-26 for 226 yards and 2 touchdowns in the win over the Terrapins.
Michigan has its work cut out from here as the Wolverines have many challenging games ahead. Week 5 brings a road trip to Iowa with Penn State, Michigan State, and Ohio State still on the docket.
Michigan will leave the Big House for the first time in the 2022 season as the team travels to Iowa City to face the Hawkeyes in Kinnick Stadium. The game will air on FOX as part of their Big Noon Kickoff game.
