Yup, No. 1 went down again when No. 10 Penn handed Maryland a 13-9 loss on Wednesday.

So, we’ll likely have a new No. 1 (again) come Monday morning. However, a B1G win in the game of the week would help the Terps make a case for keeping the top spot.

There are also tons of other intriguing matchups on this weekend’s slate, which is more Saturday-heavy than usual with Easter Sunday upon us.


Game of the Week: No. 1 Maryland (9-2) at No. 2 Michigan (11-0) – Saturday, 12:30 p.m. (Big Ten Network)

Maryland could be a sitting duck No. 1, but the Wolverines will look to state a case for overtaking the top spot for the first time in program history.

Rutgers (5-5) at No. 4 Northwestern (9-2) – Saturday, 6 p.m. (Big Ten Network)
