The Maryland Terrapins join the Big Ten this year after leaving the ACC, a conference in which they were a charter member.
There has been a lot of concern about Maryland's chances to compete against the big boys of the Big Ten, but the Terps are a bit of a darkhorse coming into this season. Randy Edsall has gone from hated to almost liked in College Park, turning the Terps around despite another rash of injuries and getting them to their first bowl game since the Ralph Friedgen era.
This year's team has the potential to be better than last year's group, especially if key players like Stefon Diggs, Deon Long and C.J. Brown can stay on the field. The Terps will really need Brown to show he can be an accurate passer and push the ball down the field considering all of the weapons at his disposal. Maryland has some fantastic wideouts who can make big plays down the field.
Maryland is in a tough division, but relatively easy out-of-conference games should help them reach another bowl game.
