Five Questions for Terps-U-Va.
Before I hit the road for Charlottesville, here are five key questions for tonight’s game:
1) Can Maryland put together a complete game?
The Terps played well for three quarters against Cal. They played well, or well enough, in the second half against Clemson. It’s time for them to pitch a complete game.
2) Will Da’Rel Scott bounce back?
Part of Scott’s struggles last week can be attributed to the struggles of the offensive line. But Scott also was running too much east and west. He should be closer to 100 percent tonight.
3) Do the Cavaliers have any fight left in them?
This is destined to be a lost season for Virginia. After being outscored 128-20 by Division I-A schools, Virginia is facing the prospect of not winning another game this season. If the Cavs have any fight left, it’s time to see it tonight against one of their rivals.
4) Can Chris Turner play like he does against good teams?
Turner had a combined three touchdown passes and no interceptions against Cal and Clemson. He is looking to throw a touchdown pass in his fifth straight game tonight. Virginia’s defense doesn’t look to pose much resistance.
5) Will Maryland’s defense gain some confidence heading into the bye week?
The pass defense still ranks as one of the nation’s worst. But matching up against Virginia’s sorry offense can cure many woes. Virginia ranks last nationally in scoring offense. Time for Maryland’s defense to put together a strong performance for four quarters.
