MI redshirt freshman QB Brandon Peters completed 9-of-18 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 35-10 victory over Maryland.

Maryland lost their last game, a 31-24 setback to Rutgers.

Before the second quarter was halfway over, MI had a 28-0 lead thanks to Peters' passing and some madcap miscues by Maryland.

Maryland (4-6, 2-5) was starting its fourth different quarterback this season, transfer Ryan Brand, a former walk-on. MI certainly isn't the best team in the Big Ten, but was made to look like it on the way to a quick 28-point lead because of the myriad opportunities presented by Maryland's incoherent game plan and consistently poor execution. Evans, who scored from a yard out in the second quarter, added a 17-yard run late in the fourth quarter. Moore in check, and he wasn't able to have the kind of break out game that the Terps needed.

The Wolverines blocked a punt on the next Maryland possession.

MI faces Wisconsin next Saturday at noon.

After a 29-yard pass to Taivon Jacobs was overturned by replay, MI blocked Wade Lees' punt.

By that time, the Terps and Wolverines might as well have been playing in Ann Arbor, Mich., because the Maryland faithful started filtering out of the stadium at halftime and the stands behind the Wolverine sideline were still well-populated with MI fans.

Michigan: The Wolverines hope to make a statement on road against the No. 8 Badgers, who were unbeaten heading into Saturday's game against Iowa.
