Teams: Maryland Terrapins (6-5, 2-5) vs. NC State (3-8, 0-7)
Stadium: Carter-Finley Stadium
Kickoff: Saturday, November 30 at 12:30PM
Watch: ACC Network
The Terps hit the road for their last ACC football game before they make the transition to the Big Ten next season.
Maryland is coming off a heart-breaking loss to Boston College in their last home game in the ACC.
With a bowl game in sight, Maryland will look for a statement-making win against NC State in Raleigh this weekend. NC State has not won a conference game yet this season.
So, how will the Terps respond against the Wolfpack?
Expect C.J. Brown to come out and lead this Maryland football team by using both his arm and his feet to attack the NC State defense.
Brown has 18 touchdowns this season with nine through the air and nine on the ground. I expect Maryland to put the ball in his hands often this game and let him carry the team on his back.
Maryland’s defense must concentrate on not giving up the big play. The big plays are what set up Boston College to win last Saturday’s game against the Terps. If Maryland can keep the ball in front of them, I think the Terps’ offense will be able to put up enough points to leave Raleigh with a win.
This season has been full of highs and lows, but Maryland has an opportunity to finish the regular season on a high note. With a win this weekend, the Terps will improve to seven wins on the season and will have an opportunity to play in its first bowl game since 2010.
