No. 1 Penn State (7-1, 0-0 Big Ten) @ No. 3 Maryland (8-1, 0-0)
Sunday, 7 p.m.
Outlook: The Nittany Lions may field their best team in recent memory, but they have never beaten the Terps in 36 all-time meetings. Penn State’s hopes of breaking the seal may depend on the health of redshirt junior attackman Grant Ament (NCAA-leading 46 assists and 56 points), who did not play on Saturday because of an unspecified lower-body injury.
The Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week tied a career high with eight points on four goals and four assists in the No. 3 Terps’ 16-9 victory over then-No. 19 North Carolina on Saturday. Wisnauskas, a Boys’ Latin graduate, has a team-leading 46 points, which is tied for the sixth-highest total among NCAA Division I players.
The Ivy League Offensive Player of the Week had four goals and one assist to spur the Bears’ comeback from a 9-2 deficit in the first half to secure an 11-10 upset of then-No. 10 Princeton on Saturday. In addition to a three-goal performance in Tuesday’s 22-11 loss at No. 18 Florida, Mosenthal has scored at least three goals eight times in nine games.
