Football Friday: ACC Madness
There are lots of college football stories to point out on our site today. With three of Maryland's next four games at home, Prisbell looks at how attendance at Byrd Stadium has been underwhelming. Tomorrow's weather forecast might not help matters.
Elsewhere in the ACC, Virginia Tech hopes to avoid its second straight loss, but will have its hands full in Tallahasssee unless the Hokies can find a way to throw the ball effectively. Meantime, if Virginia is to continue its remarkable resurgence, the Cavaliers will have to slow down Coach Paul Johnson's triple-option offense at Georgia Tech, and their linebackers likely will be the key.
All of that adds up to another week in the most unpredictable league in the land. In a story that will appear in tomorrow's paper, Eric takes a look at what the ACC lacks in national title contenders, it makes up for in parity.
Johnson's former team, Navy, will attempt to bounce back from last week's loss to Pittsburgh by doing what they've usually done so well: run the ball.
Getting beyond the ACC, on the eve of the Penn State-Ohio State game, Steve Yanda looks at this season's explosion of the Nittany Lions' offense. How does Penn State's revival affect Maryland? Does the instability of Coach Joe Paterno's situation offset any recruiting benefits Penn State might enjoy courtesy of this season's fine showing?
