To­day’s state games

Baltimore Sun - - COLLEGE FOOTBALL -

When: Tonight, 7 Site: Bright House Net­works Sta­dium, Or­lando Video: CBS Sports Net­work Au­dio: 1300 AM, 980 AM; TuneIn Line: Mary­land by 10 Se­ries: First meet­ing What’s at stake: Af­ter two straight blowouts, in­clud­ing a 41-14 win at Florida In­ter­na­tional last week, Mary­land knows that this should be the most com­pet­i­tive team it has faced. With a near-sell­out crowd of about 45,000 ex­pected, it will be the most hos­tile en­vi­ron­ment the Terps have played in un­der new coach DJ Durkin. Key matchup: Mary­land has av­er­aged about 277 yards in its first two games. De­spite los­ing, 51-14, last week at Michi­gan, the Knights sur­ren­dered just 119 yards on the ground to the Wolver­ines. It should be in­ter­est­ing to see whether of­fen­sive co­or­di­na­tor Walt Bell tries to wear down UCF’s big de­fen­sive line with his big­ger tail­backs, se­niors Trey Ed­munds and Ken­neth Goins Jr. (Gil­man), or if he goes more to the out­side with fresh­man Lorenzo Har­ri­son. Player to watch: Sopho­more wide re­ceiver D.J. Moore had a ca­reer game at FIU, fin­ish­ing with six re­cep­tions for 147 yards, in­clud­ing touch­downs of 40 and 45 yards. The Knights were sus­cep­ti­ble to giv­ing up large chunks of yardage in the air to Michi­gan last week, with Wolver­ines se­nior wide re­ceiver Amara Dar­boh catch­ing five passes for 111 yards, in­clud­ing two touch­downs. — Don Markus
