Maryland Terrapins-UConn Huskies First Look: The Edsall Bowl Cometh - Testudo Times
Maryland's not-quite-anemic-but-still-not-very-good offense will go up against a smothering UConn defense - #3 in the country in both total and scoring defense so far - while their fearsome front seven will run into a run-first offense that, strangely, can't run, and their worrisome secondary will get a break by facing the nation's most interception-prone quarterback - a quarterback with a QBR 15 points lower than Perry Hills.

Though UConn has more depth on the perimeter than inside, the Huskies still have only 10 total scholarship players, so keeping the roster healthy is critical. Tyler Olander, who sprained his ankle a week and a half ago, is out of his walking boot, but still mostly a spectator on Monday. With Napier and Olander out, it's difficult to get enough players for a good pickup game.
