The University of Maryland Terrapins open up their college football season on Monday when they take on the University of Miami under the lights of Capitol One Field at Byrd Stadium.
While there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the game on the Miami side, it is the Terps who are coming off a more successful season, one in which they improved with seven more wins than the prior year.
Even with the 'Canes missing some of their best players, including All-ACC safety Ray-Ray Armstrong and starting quarterback Jacory Harris, many still believe Miami is going to be so fired up from the suspensions that they will play their hearts out and come out ahead.
The Terrapins definitely have a tough task ahead of them still, but with the combination of a home crowd and a depleted Miami squad, they have a very good chance of starting off the season 1-0 and getting new head coach Randy Edsall his first win at Maryland.
Of course, as much as football is a team sport, it could come down to an individual performance that boosts the Terps to victory.
With that in mind, the following slideshow features five players to pay special attention to during the game.
