Maryland opened its season in impressive fashion a week ago with its 50-21 victory over Richmond. In Week 2, the Terps host a high-powered Bowling Green squad that put up big numbers against then-No. 25 Tennessee a week ago.
Game 1: Bowling Green (0-1)
Location: Byrd Stadium, College Park
Kickoff: 12 p.m.
TV: Big Ten Network with Joe Beninati (play-by-play) and Scott McBrien (analyst)
Last week: Maryland pulled away from Richmond thanks to a record-breaking performance by punt returner Will Likely. Bowling Green lost to Tennessee, 59-30, despite putting up 557 yards of total offense.
Series: First meeting.
Maryland players to watch: Running backs Brandon Ross ran for a career-high 150 yards a week ago and Wes Brown added 74 yards on the ground as the Terps averaged more than seven yards per carry against the Spiders. They're facing a Bowling Green offense that allowed 399 rushing yards a week ago. Defensively, cornerbacks Sean Davis and Will Likely will be tested by Bowling Green's aerial attack.
Richmond players to watch: Quarterback Matt Johnson (424 passing yards last week) along with wide receivers Gehrig Dieter, Ronnie Moore, Ryan Burbink and Roger Lewis make for a formidable combinaton in the passing game.
