FIU will take on their 2nd Big 10 opponent this season as they face off against Maryland here in Week 2 on Friday night.
FIU will look to rebound from an opening season loss to Indiana, while Maryland looks to build off their win over Howard in the season opener.
While the win won’t headline anything, Maryland got off on the right foot last week against Howard.
The Terps raced out to a 45-0 lead as they did everything right from the opening kickoff.
QB Perry Hillis absolutely picked apart the Howard secondary, finding his receivers all over the field and even deep down field.
Defensively, the Terps had a lot of success. While they did allow 2 garbage time touchdowns with 2nd and 3rd stringers in, the first team performed nearly flawless.
They allowed just 2 yards per game in the first half, while allowing Howard to move the chains just twice.
While the Terps have another clear cut advantage here, the preparation is going to be a little different. Maryland has less than a week to prepare for this one.
After playing on Saturday, they’ll see an FIU team that got 8 days of rest to work with. While the starters for the Terps didn’t play in the 2nd half, they still have to worry about being a exhausted from the travel and lack of prep time.
FIU Golden Panthers
Florida International will welcome in their 2nd straight Big 10 opponent and will look to change their fortunes here in Week 2.
The Panthers opened play last Thursday against the Hoosiers and stayed within striking distance for a majority of the game.
However, half way through the 3rd after trailing by just 3, the Panthers saw the Hoosiers take off.
It was the offense that really hurt this team in Week 1. FIU threw a pair of pick 6s as they did zero favors for this team by not scoring and managing to let the opposition score.
However, that also means the 34 points allowed doesn’t reflect how the defense played. FIU really caused a lot of problems for the Hoosiers and allowed nothing deep down field.
The Panthers will use the same strategy as last week, looking to get into the backfield quick and force some tough decisions.
The turnover battle will be crucial, as the Golden Panthers learned the hard way last week in their 4th quarter meltdown.

This has the makings for a bit of a trap game for Maryland.
With a short week, the prep time may come back to hurt them, especially going on the road.
