Maryland offense vs. Towson defense: Maryland returns suspended senior receivers Ronnie Tyler and Quintin McCree to an offense that held the ball for only 19 minutes in a 38-7 loss to Temple. The Terps rushed for just 45 yards against the Owls, but hope to use their size against the smaller Tigers up front to establish a running game. The Tigers, hoping for their first 4-0 start since 2006, already have seven sacks, five fumble recoveries, three interceptions and are surrendering just 10 points per game. If attendance exceeds 36,000, it will be the largest crowd to watch Towson play.

Maryland defense vs. Towson offense: Maryland has had to replace a handful of injured defensive starters. This will be the first game without safety Matt Robinson (shoulder), who will be replaced by redshirt freshman Titus Till. Towson is averaging 460 yards of total offense, including a CAA-best 246 rushing yards per game. Sophomore quarterback Grant Enders (Old Mill) has completed 73.3 percent of his passes and run for 113 yards. Receiver Leon Kinnard (eight catches, 54 yards) and Gerrard Sheppard (four catches, 55 yards) played for Maryland coach Randy Edsall at Connecticut last year.
