I've come to expect the unexpected when these teams meet, which is fun for fans who stick with their team until the end. Maryland's bowl eligibility should be the overriding motivation in the game, but we've seen many teams lay an egg in that spot, too. As for the last two years, neither was forgettable in Piscataway. In 2014, when both teams already were bowl-bound, up-and-down senior quarterback Gary Nova completed a redemption tour senior year with the school-record 25-point comeback win against the Terps. In 2015, blowing a 21-point lead and losing to the Terps was the final game of the Kyle Flood era and a fitting end to an embarrassing year on and off the field for the program. Even with fewer wins this season, it's no comparison.
