Nebraska comes to town fresh off an impressive road victory at Indiana. The Terps are better than Nebraska and should beat them regardless of the Huskers midweek performance.
There's a lot at stake for Maryland. A win and they will surely be ranked in the Top 25. Also, as evidenced by indiana's inconsistency and Michigan State's many losses, the conference is up for grabs. Getting off to a good start in conference is critical.
Tough games loom in the next two weeks as a trip to Ann Arbor is on tap next weekend and Indiana comes to College Park shortly thereafter.
The Terps can't afford to give away wins at home to the likes of Nebraska.
It's becoming clear that the Big Ten is not very good this year. The Terps may need 11 conference wins to get a tourney bid. Every game matters.
It's been a great season so far. No top 25 wins but 13-1 is outstanding and there is no reason why it can't be 14-1
Happy New Year everyone!
