6.) Maryland  (1-0)

Last Week: 52-7 win over James Madison

This is what happens when you take on a Division I-AA opponent. Maryland cruised to victory against a Dukes team with a new coach and not the highest expectations. James Madison wasn’t terrible, as they had a Division I QB, WR, and a few players on defense, but the talent gap was staggering. That’s what Maryland was supposed to do though. C.J. Brown needs to be a little more accurate, but I wouldn’t take too much from this game. They’ll get the Bulls next week on the road and one of the nation’s only 200-yard rushers in Marlon Mack, who looked amazing against Western Carolina last week.
