Maryland will look to remain unbeaten when they head south to take on the Central Florida Knights Saturday night.
The Terrapins have started the season off 2-0, while the Knights will look to match their season win total from last season here with a victory.
Maryland has started the season off 2-0 and they’re looking incredibly impressive offensively, something they haven’t seen in years.
Maryland QB Perry Hills has been at the center of it all, going 27 for 37 on the season with 336 yards and 3 touchdowns on the season. While his stats aren’t completely overwhelming, he continues to be efficient and really make good decisions with the football.
Running wise, things have been extremely impressive for Maryland.
They have had 6 different players find the end zone with their rushing attack, as Lorenzo Harrison and Trey Edmunds continue to get the most touches in the backfield.
Maryland’s key to success has been that it’s not just one guy who is contributing. Along with Hills and the rush game, WR D.J. Moore has had a solid start to his freshman season.
Moore has 10 receptions for 184 yards to go along with a pair of touchdowns.
The Knights last season had just 1 win and barely competed with anyone.
They’ll have a chance to surpass their win total from last season as they enter play with one win already on the season. UCF took down South Carolina State 38-0 prior to getting smacked around at Michigan.
Despite losing 51-14, the Knights did show some signs of brilliance in the 2nd half of the contest.
QB Justin Holman went down on the sideline after scrambling last week and his status remains unclear here for Saturday’s contest.
Senior Nick Patti will get the nod if Holman is sidelined.
Look for the Knights to try to find that running game from last week, that produced 275 yards.
