Make Your Predictions

The way I see this game, Middle Tennessee quarterback Dwight Dasher is the key. If Dasher plays like Joe Craddock did in last season’s 24-14 victory over Maryland, MTSU has a great chance to win. But Dasher threw three interceptions in the season-opening loss at Clemson, and I see him making a couple similar mistakes Saturday.

Make no mistake, I think MTSU will move the football, especially through the air against a depleted Maryland secondary. And I think Chris Turner will have little problem leading the Terrapins on scoring drives.

I just see the difference being one quarterback making fewer mistakes than the other.

Maryland 33, Middle Tennessee 30

Your predictions?

Maryland's defense is decimated and is allowing 43.5 ppg.

MTSU wins 42-27.

MD 31-21. Even though it is still early in the season, they need a comfotable win. Though 10 points may not look like a comfortable win, I would define it as such based on their performance for the first 2 games. This game needs to be used as a springboard for the next 5 games that will dictate the direction of this season (Rutgers, Clemson, Wake, UVA, Duke) and they need to be show significant improvement from their first 2 games. Fear the Turner!!!!!

Maryland by two touchdowns. Don't overlook the revenge factor in college football. 35-21.

I think Chism will be a surprise for us. I think the defense will perform better. The offense will get it going even better than last week. Terps win. I stopped predicting the score after the CAL game

I think this team will start to mature a slight bit - and will be a little pissed off about their hard luck with injuries and lackluster start.

Maryland 34
MTSU 17

It's kinda funny reading these comments about Fridge "getting canned this year." Never ceases to amaze me how people who have absolutely no idea what they are talking about will make these grand proclamations. Fridge could retire--though that is highly unlikely. But other than that, there's simply no way he will be fired by Debbie Yow this year. And anyone who wants him gone A) didn't give a rat's *ss about Terp football prior to 2001 or B) is an idiot.

Terps win handily tomorrow

i think the defense goes in with something to prove, especially the front 7 to keep some pressure off of the dbacks. i'm hoping they're flying around the MTSU backfield creating havoc. still there's enough questions in that backfield.

short field for both teams often, but 28-24 MD
