The Michigan Wolverines are on upset alert against the Maryland Terrapins, and Twitter couldn’t believe it.
The early slate of games in Week 4 have been filled with upset alerts. From the Georgia Bulldogs against the Kent State Golden Flashes, to the Clemson Tigers against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Sure enough, there was another top team in the nation on upset alert.
On Saturday, the No. 4 Michigan Wolverines were in a tough battle against the undefeated Maryland Terrapins. The Wolverines entered halftime with just a 17-13 lead.
Twitter users, well, they were in shock that Michigan did not have a more commanding lead. And, of course, there were some who were trolling the Wolverines.
Michigan got off to a solid start, as they forced Maryland to fumble on the opening kickoff. Quarterback J.J. McCarthy then completed a one-yard touchdown pass to tight end Luke Schoonmaker to take a 7-0 lead.
Trailing 10-3 in the first half, Maryland scored 10 unanswered points on a two-yard touchdown run by Antwain Littleton II and a 52-yard field goal by Chad Ryland.
The Wolverines avoided trailing the Terrapins at halftime after star running back Blake Corum ran for a 33-yard touchdown on fourth-and-one.
Corum ran for 132 yards on 13 carries in the first half. Meanwhile, McCarthy completed 11-of-16 pass attempts for 100 yards.
Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa threw for 121 yards and one interception while completed 12-of-18 pass attempts. However, he was forced to leave the game midway through the third quarter with an injury after a big hit.
Michigan avoided catastrophe just before the end of the half. It could have been a 13-10 deficit for them.
