The Northwestern Wildcats are hoping to rebound from a disappointing 2-3 start to the season with its first-ever trip to College Park. They are set to face D.J. Durkin and the Maryland Terrapins (3-2, 1-1 B1G), a Big Ten program on the rise. Maryland certainly has a more impressive resumé heading into the contest, as the Terps stunningly upset Texas on the road in Week 1 and won as double-digit underdogs against Minnesota in Week 2. However, injuries have badly hampered Maryland’s ability to do much of anything recently, as seen by its 62-14 loss to Ohio State, which was somehow not as close as the score suggests.
