Now, here comes Maryland. The Terps' inept offense is led by freshman quarterback Perry Hills.
In three games, Hills has completed 37 of 69 passes for 444 yards, with three touchdowns and four interceptions. Maryland is averaging 148 passing yards per game.
Hills has also rushed for 44 yards and two touchdowns on 38 carries. He has been sacked 10 times.
No less than four running backs have been competing for playing time. The Terps have averaged 110 rushing yards per game between them, with none being listed as the starter for Saturday's game.
The Mountaineer defense should feast on the Terps offense, hopefully scoring on their own with a turnover.
The one strength Maryland has is its defense. They are better than either D that WVU has faced so far. Maryland’s defense is ranked eighth nationally, allowing just 227 yards per game.
The Terps are ranked sixth against the pass, allowing only 124 yards per game.
Maryland's defense is led by linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield, a 6'2'', 240-pound senior. Hartsfield has 26 tackles, one sack and one interception in three games.
In the three games they've played, Maryland hasn't faced anything remotely close to the WVU passing machine. This game should not be close, and WVU is almost a four touchdown favorite.
But if the WVU offensive line doesn't show up again this week, it could be interesting. I don't like interesting. I like WVU blowouts. I want to see Geno signing autographs during the fourth quarter!
