"We could play one guy the whole game or … we could play two," Edsall said. "We've got a lot of variables going in, but the competition has been very good and very healthy."

Boston College (1-6, 0-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) @ Maryland (2-5, 1-3 ACC)



Time: Saturday, 3 p.m.

Site: Byrd Stadium

TV: Comcast SportsNet

Radio: 105.7 FM, 980 AM

Series: Boston College leads 5-3.

Last meeting: Maryland beat Boston College, 24-21, on Oct. 23, 2010.

Maryland offense vs. Boston College defense: Maryland said it was giving both quarterbacks — Danny O'Brien and C.J. Brown — work with the first unit in practice and that both could play. Coach Randy Edsall said he won't name the starter until game time. The Eagles are led by junior LB Luke Kuechly, who recorded the most tackles in the nation as a sophomore. "He is all over the field. He is very active," Edsall said. Maryland WR Kevin Dorsey is out again, and receiver-returner Tony Logan is questionable with undisclosed injuries.

Maryland defense vs. Boston College offense: Sophomore QB Chase Rettig has started all seven games and ranks ninth in the ACC in passing (194.6 yards per game). Boston College lost leading RB Montel Harris for the season. Andre Williams averages 55.5 rushing yards. Maryland ranks last in the ACC in scoring defense and total defense (nonconference games included).
