The Maryland Terrapins and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish have met just one time in their history, back in 2002 when the Irish shut out the Terrapins 22-0 in East Rutherford New Jersey. The two teams will meet again on a neutral site at FedEx Field, the normal home of the NFL's Washington Redskins. The Terrapins have had a dismal season so far, winning just two games and looking completely uncompetitive so far this season. They've gone back and forth between quarterbacks and haven't had much success with either, not to mention their defense is giving up over 30 points per game.
Notre Dame on the other hand has won two of their last three, losing to Southern Cal three weeks ago. Tommy Rees has fully entrenched himself as the Irish starting quarterback leading the offense to over 32 points per game. The Notre Dame defense, led by linebacker Manti Te'o have held opponents to just 21 points per game. It will be tough sledding for a struggling Maryland offense and a defense that can't stop anyone.
Game date, time: 7:30 pm ET, Saturday, November 12th
Location: FedEx Field, Landover, MD
TV channel: NBC
Spread: Notre Dame favored by 20.5 points
