Michigan football absolutely decimated conference and division foe Maryland Terrapins 59-18 making a massive statement win with the biggest game of the season looming on the horizon.

Michigan football made a huge statement win over the weekend after completely destroying the Maryland Terrapins. Although the score looks impressive there were plenty of times where Maryland seemed like it was going to make it a game.

The offensive play calling while usually underwhelming by Josh Gattis was the exact definition of perfect. He threw in plays that I have never seen the Wolverines run all season, then run them successfully. He implemented many new sets and packages that looked amazing.

There are about 100 plays I could add to this list and we would still have a debate on which ones are more important than which, so instead we’re not going to rank them but rather just list 5 that were legitimately game-changing or just really cool plays.

Donovan Edwards monster 77-yard touchdown

We knew that Donovan Edwards had potential, but we did not expect to see it so soon. Edwards broke the single-game receiving record for a running back in Michigan football history!

This play really, and I mean really put the nail in the coffin against the Terrapins. This electrifying wheel route was one of Josh Gattis’s new play calls that are really meant to exploit those man-to-man coverages where the linebacker has to cover the running back.

Shoutout to Donovan Edwards for the fantastic game last night against the Terrapins as well as really putting your name on notice to the national spotlight.
