What to watch for Maryland: Do they bounce back following first home loss?

With the College Gameday crew in town, the Terps dropped their first home game of the season, falling to Michigan State. With one final road contest before the regular season ends, Maryland is looking to come out strong and handle the Scarlet Knights to complete the season sweep. A win will also go a long way in helping the Terps finish in first place in the Big Ten, which would be the first time they did so since joining the conference in 2014.

What to watch for Rutgers: Do they hold down the RAC and get revenge?

Rutgers has only lost one home game all season and is also coming off of a heartbreaking one-point loss to Penn State last week. With the chance to hand the Terps their third loss in four games, the Scarlet Knights will look to get off to a hot start early and hopefully put Maryland in a hole they can’t climb out of.
