Meanwhile, the Terps enter Big 10 conference play with a 2-0 record and some of the best offensive totals in the conference. On the other end of the docket, the outcome depends on which version of the Louisville Cardinals will show up against UCF. While the Cards blew out an FCS opponent last week, they were destroyed by Ole Miss and will face neven stiffer opponent this week. Due to the small player pool, we will only present recommendations to fill a standard roster.
