No. 1 Ohio State (5–0, 1–0 Big Ten) will host Maryland (2–3, 0–1 Big Ten) in a Big Ten East matchup on Saturday. 

Ohio State is coming off a major scare last week, as the Buckeyes barely edged out a solid Indiana team 34–27 on the road. Quarterback Cardale Jones finished the game 18-for-27 with 245 yards, a touchdown and an interception, while running back Ezekiel Elliott led the way for the Buckeyes, as he carried the ball 23 times for 274 yards and three touchdowns. Elliott has rushed for 729 yards so far this season, averaging 7.3 yards per carry. 

Maryland is hoping to rebound after being blown out in consecutive games. Last week, the Terrapins were embarrassed by Michigan at home when they failed to score in a 28–0 loss. Maryland was nearly shut out by West Virginia in its previous game, falling 45–6. Three different quarterbacks have taken snaps for the Terrapins this year, with Caleb Rowe getting the majority. He has 12 interceptions this season, and has completed just 40 of 91 passes for 428 yards and four touchdowns.
