Here are things you’ll want to know about the Ohio State game against Maryland:
1. Kickoff is at 4 p.m. on Saturday in Ohio Stadium (capacity 104,955). This is Ohio State's Homecoming weekend, with a parade at 5 p.m. Friday starting at the stadium, followed by a pep rally at the Ohio union.
2. There's a chance of rain, but the gametime temperature should be about 82 degrees.
3. Ohio State (4-1, 2-0) is favored by 30 points over Maryland (3-1, 1-0), which already has road wins over Minnesota and Texas.
4. This will be the fourth time Ohio State has played Maryland, with the Buckeyes winning the three previous meetings since the Terrapins joined the Big Ten prior for the 2014 season.
5. The game is being televised by Fox (Channel 28), whose crew will be Gus Johnson (play-by-play), Joel Klatt (analysis) and Jenny Taft (sideline).
6. You also can hear the game on local radio at 97.1 The Fan with announcers Paul Keels (play-by-play), Jim Lachey (analysis) and Matt Andrews (sideline).
7. This will be Urban Meyer's 200th game as a head coach. He has the highest winning percentage among active coaches at .849, with 169 wins and 30 losses. That's the third-highest in Division I history, behind only Knute Rockne and Frank Leahy (both of whom coached before Meyer was born).
8. Meyer will be facing a former assistant coach for the second consecutive week. Maryland coach DJ Durkin, now in his second season, was a graduate assistant for Meyer at Bowling Green, then reunited with him at Florida as the Gators’ linebackers and special teams coach. "He’s one of the top two or three I've ever had on my staff,” Meyer said this week.
9. Expect to hear a lot about ... Maryland quarterback Max Bortenschlager, playing because the team has lost two other starting quarterbacks to season-ending injuries so far ... receiver D.J. Moore, who is leading the Big Ten in receiving touchdowns with five and in receiving yards with 403 ... and running back Ty Johnson has averaged 123 yards rushing over his last six games dating back to last season.
10. Strength against strength: Maryland’s defense has gone eight consecutive games without allowing their opponent to have a 100-yard rusher. Ohio State has had a 100-yards rusher in three of their five games so far.
