Rivalry: Syracuse leads 19-14-2

Current Streak: 5, Syracuse

First Meeting: In 1920, the series kicked off with a 10-7 Maryland victory in Archbold Stadium. Don't worry, the Orangemen would get their revenge the next year, drubbing the Terps 42-0. Everything's eventual.

Last Meeting: Last year, the Orange offense opened the game with a 16-play drive, spanning nearly eight minutes. On Jerome Smith's eighth carry of the drive – his second on 4th down – he ran for a one yard touchdown and SU didn't look back, cruising to a 20-3 victory in College Park.

Head Coaches: SU: Scott Shafer (2nd Year, 9-6), Maryland: Randy Edsall (4th Year, 15-25)

Curious Connections: Obviously, there's Randy Edsall, who played quarterback for Syracuse and spent eleven seasons as an assistant with the program. Edsall's wife, Eileen, also graduated from SU and was honored as a 2013 Letterwinner of Distinction last week. Then there's Corey Edsall, who spent a year with SU as a walk-on quarterback before transferring to Maryland. Other coach-related connections include Maryland DC Brian Stewart, who coached Syracuse's DBs in 2001. And hey, remember Cody Catalina? The former Orange TE is a grad assistant at UM. Finally there's Maryland's RB coach Andrew Powell, who was on the same Rhode Island staff as Scott Shafer back in 1993.

Last Year: In their final ACC season, the Terps finished 7–6 (3–5 in conference play) in fifth place in the Atlantic Division. They were invited to the Military Bowl where they lost 30-21 to Marshall.

Last Game: After trailing 28-6 to West Virginia, the Terps stormed back to tie the game 37-37 late. However, Josh Lambert hit a field goal as time expired and the Mountaineers won, 40-37.

"Fear Me, I've Killed Hundreds of Timelords": Stefon Diggs and William Likely form a dangerous return duo. Diggs is fourth in the NCAA in kick return average (33.4). Likely is third nationally in punt return average (27.5) and brought one back 69 yards for a TD versus West Virginia. Diggs also leads the Terps in receiving with 230 yards and a TD.

If Syracuse Wins...: It'll be the first 3-0 start for the Orange since 1991, Paul Pasqualoni’s first year as head coach.

If Syracuse Loses: It'll be an unfortunate mood-killer heading into the showdown with Notre Dame. We'd love to be 3-0 before that one, especially since this one's at home.

Fun Fact: Scott Shafer is the fourth SU coach since 1937 to post a winning record in his first 15 games at the helm. Shafer is 9-6 overall, good for a .600 winning percentage. He joins Ossie Solem (9-5-1, 1937- 38), Ben Schwartzwalder (8-7, 1949-50) and Paul Pasqualoni (12-3, 1991-92).
