Last game: 31-24 win vs. Northwestern
Next game: Nov. 5 @ Wisconsin

The bye week came at a perfect time for Maryland as they faced a terrible Northwestern squad and squeaked by with a victory without their quarterback and then got another week off after that game. Now with three more days until this matchup with Wisconsin, will Tagovailoa be healthy enough to play?

Without Tagovailoa, there is no chance this Maryland team takes down Wisconsin and Braelon Allen. With Tagovailoa, the Terrapins will have no issues handling the Badgers in Week 10 and continuing to rise up the power rankings. Strap in Terrapin fans!
