• Ohio State outgained the Terrapins 361-26 in the first half.

• Ohio State’s defense has held each of its last four opponents to fewer than 100 yards passing.

• Ohio State limited Maryland to 66 yards of total offense. The figure is the least amount of total yards the Buckeyes have allowed in a Big Ten game since allowing 60 yards to Indiana Nov. 5, 1960.

• The Buckeyes held Maryland to 16 passing yards. It marked the least passing yards allowed by Ohio State in a Big Ten game since is allowed zero to Wisconsin Nov. 18, 1989.

• Jerome Baker’s 20-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown was the first fumble returned for a touchdown for the Buckeyes since Vonn Bell returned one 14 yards for a touchdown against Hawaii Sept. 12, 2015.

• The 53-yard reception by Mike Weber on Ohio State’s second possession was a career long (rushing or receiving). It tops his previous high of a 52-yard run last season at Michigan State.

#10 Ohio State (4-1, 2-0) hosts Maryland (3-1, 1-0) today at 4:00

Maryland is set to face No. 10 Ohio State when it lines up at Ohio Stadium Saturday at 4pm on FOX.

The Terps enter Columbus 1-0 in Big Ten play after defeating Minnesota on the road, 31-24, behind third-string quarterback Max Bortenschlager, M. . A number of key factors led to the victory, most notably Maryland limiting its turnovers (0) and converting 9-of-16 third down conversions while protecting Bortenschlager (zero sacks allowed).

Maryland has won three games this season with three different starting quarterbacks, with Tyrrell Pigrome starting against Texas, Kasim Hill starting against Towson and Max Bortenschlager starting against Minnesota. Pigrome and Hill have since been ruled out for the season due to injury. Bortenschlager passed for two touchdowns and ran for a third in the Terps’ win over the Golden Gophers.

Junior wide receiver DJ Moore caught his fifth touchdown pass of the season against Minnesota to move into a tie for fourth in Maryland history with Minnesota Vikings star Stefon Diggs (2012-14) at 14 career TD receptions. Moore is off to an incredible start in 2017, leading the Big Ten in virtually every receiving category: receiving touchdowns (5), receiving yards (403), receiving yards per game (100.8) and receptions per game (7.5).

The Maryland defense has not allowed a 100-yard rusher in eight consecutive games dating back to 2016, with Nebraska’s Terrell Newby posting the most with 98 rush yards during the span on Nov. 19, 2016. Overall, the defense is allowing 131.8 rush yards/g in 2017, which ranks 48th nationally and seventh in the Big Ten – a far cry from last season when it ranked 99th nationally allowing 214.8/g.

Junior running back Ty Johnson has racked up 738 rushing yards (123.0/g) over his last six games dating back to 2016, averaging 10.3 yards-per-carry during the span. Johnson has totaled six rushing touchdowns in those six games, while eclipsing the 100-yard mark in five games during the span.

TERRAPINS OFFENSE

Wide receiver DJ Moore has been spectacular through the season’s first four games, leading the conference in virtually every receiving category: touchdowns (5), yards (403), yards per game (100.8) and receptions per game (7.5). Moore has had at least seven catches in every game this season. Prior to 2017, he had never had more than six receptions in a game.

Ty Johnson and DJ Moore currently represent arguably the nation’s top playmaking duo, ranking second (160.0/g) and third (146.3), respectively in all-purpose yards per game. They also rank eighth and 15th nationally, respectively. Johnson and Moore are the only teammates in the country in the top-25 in all-purpose yards per game.

Junior wide receiver DJ Moore has caught five touchdown passes through four games, becoming the first Maryland player to achieve the feat since Torrey Smith in 2010. He is the first Maryland player in the last 35 years to catch a touchdown in each of the first four games to open the season. His six total touchdowns through four games is the most for a Terrapin receiver since Jermaine Lewis had six touchdowns in 1993.

Junior running back Ty Johnson turned his eighth career 100-yard rushing game, and fifth in the last six games dating back to 2016, with a 130-yard effort at Minnesota. All eight of his 100-yard games have come in the last 14 games, with five against Big Ten opponents. Johnson capped off his fantastic day against the Gophers with a game-winning 34-yard touchdown run with 1:10 remaining.

Wide receiver DJ Moore currently leads Big Ten Conference with a reception in 25 straight games. It is the longest streak for a Maryland player since Torrey Smith finished his career with a 30-game reception streak from 2008-10. Moore currently has 11 touchdown catches over his last 17 games.

TERRAPINS DEFENSE

The Maryland defense notched two interceptions in the win against Minnesota, with Josh Woods catching the first of his career and JC Jacksonsealing the victory with less than a minute remaining. The Terps now have five interceptions through four games – most in a four-game stretch to open a season since 2014.

The Terps rank fourth in the Big Ten Conference with a +0.75/g turnover margin, winning the turnover battle in all three of its victories. Overall, they have totaled five interceptions and forced five fumbles (one lost) against just three interceptions and one forced fumble (zero lost). Last season, the Terps lost the turnover battle, 19-12, over the course of 13 games.

Maryland has made a habit of jumping out to fast starts this season, outscoring its opponents 45-7 in the first quarter. In fact, the Terrapin defense has yet to allow a point in the opening frame.

Senior linebacker Jermaine Carter, Jr. currently leads the Terps with 29 tackles on the season and appears poised to lead the team in the category for the third consecutive season. He would be just the fifth Maryland player to achieve the feat since 1969, joining Alex Wujciak (2008-10), D’Qwell Jackson (2003-05), E.J. Henderson (2000-02) and Ratcliff Thomas (1993-95).

The Maryland rush defense was stout against Minnesota, allowing just 80 yards on the ground in the game. It marked the third time in four games the defense has held its opponent under 100 yards rushing. Last year’s defense only held its opponent under 100 yards rushing once in 13 games, allowing 150+yards in 12-of-13.

TERRAPINS SPECIAL TEAMS

Graduate transfer Henry Darmstader came through in the clutch with a career-long 51-yard field goal as time expired in the first half against Minnesota last weekend. Darmstadter, who is Georgetown’s all-time kicking leader, had a previous long of 49 yards. It was the longest field goal for a Terps since Brad Craddock hit a 57-yarder against Ohio State in 2014. He has made a seamless transition into the lineup, including knocking down a Maryland record nine PATs against Towson in his Terrapin debut.
