Indiana tries to snap a three-game losing streak Saturday when it hosts Big Ten Conference foe Maryland, which is trying to become bowl eligible with a sixth victory. The Hoosiers have played well during their streak but dropped games to No. 8 Ohio State and No. 6 Nebraska before last week’s setback at Northwestern.

Maryland is happy with the play of Perry Hills, who returned to the lineup last week after being sidelined one game by a shoulder injury and was 21-of-27 for 200 yards and a pair of scores in the Terrapins’ home victory over Michigan State. Hill is helped by a ground attack led by Lorenzo Harrison (502 yards) and Ty Johnson (482), who each had more than 100 yards on the ground against the Spartans.

After facing two straight backup quarterbacks, Maryland’s defense will have to steel itself against Lagow, even with injuries taking away its numbers. Darnell Savage sustained an injury early against Michigan State and his status is unknown for the game against the Hoosiers, possibly leaving the Terrapins down three starting defensive backs.

Getting leading rusher Devine Redding (590 yards) is definitely important, though Redding has only one score through seven games this year, compared to his nine in 13 contests a year ago.

Maryland’s defense has held all but one opponent to 200 or fewer passing yards, with each of its last three opponents recording less than 12 completions.
