Maryland has won three of its first four ACC games. All three victories have come against teams (Duke, Boston College, Wake Forest) that played first-year quarterbacks.
That's an unusual streak, but guess what? The Terps are likely to face another first-year quarterback on Saturday in Miami's Stephen Morris.
Junior quarterback Jacory Harris, who is second in career touchdown passes at the school with 50, suffered a concussion last week. Miami coach Randy Shannon said Wednesday that there is "probably about a 75 percent chance that he will not be participating in this game." Morris would replace him.
Morris passed for 162 yards and two touchdowns against Virginia last week.
Maryland will, of course, try to make it difficult for the freshman to manage the game.
