Brandau recorded 15 saves in his first Terps start.
Brennan became the first Terp to win the honor since Logan Wisnauskas in 2018.
After struggling with consistency from the faceoff X a season ago, the Terps showcased their prowess Saturday.
The Terps scored their most goals in a game since 2013.
“There were times [last year] when things didn’t go well, and we didn’t bounce back,” coach John Tillman said. “That’s something that we talked a lot about, something we focused a lot on."
The Terps were also picked to finish No. 2 in the conference, behind Penn State.
The Terps are set to face six teams that made last year's NCAA tournament.
The Terps were eliminated in overtime by Virginia in the NCAA tournament last season.
Bernhardt compiled over 4,000 all-purpose yards and more than 30 touchdowns for Lake Brantley High School in Florida.
