Team B possesses a more damaging loss and has not played nearly as well on the road as Team A. But Team B has played a much tougher schedule and has two more top 50 wins. From that standpoint, you may give a slight edge to Team B. But look closer: Team A beat Team B head-to-head on Team B's home court. That result was early in the season but was not close. So different members of the selection committee may take different sides on this debate depending upon what criteria they personally value most.
Team A is Maryland.
Team B is Penn State.
