For the third straight season, the Maryland Terrapins are off to a 3-0 start, having won each of their 3 opening games by at least 18 points. Maryland is led by Redshirt senior Taulia Tagovailoa who has quickly become the best quarterback in Terrapins history. Tagovailoa, who is coming off a season-high 342-yard performance against Virginia last Friday, holds the Maryland record in passing touchdowns (56), passing yards (8,768), and completions (731).

The 23-year-old revealed this summer, that he turned down a $1.5 million offer to transfer to an unidentified SEC team to remain at Maryland, where he hopes to lead his team to the Big Ten Championship title.

Michigan State:

The Michigan State Spartans look to recover after last week’s 41-7 loss at home against Washington. The 31-point loss was the team’s first game without head coach Mel Tucker who was initially suspended without pay amid allegations that he sexually harassed a sexual assault awareness activist last year.

On Monday, Michigan State informed Tucker that it intends to terminate his contract for cause. Tucker is in the third year of a $95 million, 10-year contract and if he is fired for cause, the school would not have to pay him what’s remaining on his deal.

Harlon Barnett, MSU’s secondary coach who is also a former Spartan’s DB, is currently acting as head coach.
