ANN ARBOR, Mich. - Wes Brown's 1-yard touchdown run with 5:59 left lifted Maryland to a 23-16 victory over Michigan, leaving the Wolverines' postseason hopes in dire shape with one regular-season left.
The Terrapins (7-4, 4-3 Big Ten) scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and guaranteed themselves at least a .500 record in conference play in their inaugural Big Ten season.
Michigan (5-6, 3-4) had won three of four to keep its bowl hopes alive, but now the Wolverines need a monumental upset at Ohio State next weekend to prolong their season.
The loss on a dreary day at Michigan Stadium was a fitting end to the Wolverines' home schedule.
Michigan led 16-9 in the fourth quarter when a roughing-the-kicker penalty kept a Maryland drive going. C.J. Brown's 8-yard touchdown run tied it, and after a missed a 39-yard field goal by Michigan, the Terrapins drove 78 yards in 10 plays for the winning score.
