While neither quarterback put their definitive stamp on the contest, redshirt freshman Brandon Peters had enough help from both teams for the Wolverines to come away with a 35-10 victory over the Terrapins.
Michigan will be looking for better results when it hits the road again this weekend to face Maryland. Here’s what to watch for when the Wolverines face the Terrapins on Saturday:
As the Wolverines prepare to face former defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin for the second time, the Daily breaks down Saturday’s matchup.
The Daily spoke with Jermaine Carter at Big Ten Media Days in July about facing Michigan’s offense, his impressions of the Wolverines and what it’s like playing under Durkin.
But nothing snowballed, and now Peters is — based on Jim Harbaugh’s press conference Monday — unquestionably Michigan’s starting quarterback.
Solomon, a true freshman, has appeared in every game this season and started the last two against Rutgers and Minnesota. He has 12 tackles so far, and is making his presence known.

After decommitting from Nevada, Brad Robbins needed to restart his recruiting process. But a phone call from Jim Harbaugh landed him in Ann Arbor, where he is now Michigan's starting punter.

Jim Harbaugh named Brandon Peters as his starter at his Monday press conference, while also discussing injury statuses and Khaleke Hudson's record-setting performance against Minnesota.
