Scouting Maryland: trouble spots for the Tigers
QB C.J. Brown: He should be good to go against the Tigers after sitting out the Virginia game with a concussion suffered against Florida State. His ability as a runner adds a dangerous dimension to the Terps' attack. He ranks third in the ACC in total offense, scored six rushing TDs in the Terps' first five games, and has the highest rushing total for any ACC quarterback this season - 122 yards against UConn.
QB Caleb Rowe: The Greer, S.C. native and former Dabo Swinney Camp standout stepped in last week for Brown and passed for a career-high 332 yards in a 27-26 win over Virginia.
LB L.A. Goree: He was honored as ACC linebacker of the week after making 16 stops against Virginia.
LB Marcus Whitfield: He ranks third in the ACC in sacks with 5.5.
RB Brandon Ross: He's a threat both as a runner and receiver. He had 169 all-purpose yards against Virginia - 88 yards and two touchdowns rushing, and a 77-yard catch-and-run.
CB-KR William Likely: He's earned a spot as a starting cornerback, in addition to being one of the leading kickoff return men in the nation.
PK Brad Craddock: He's 12 of 14 on field goals this season, and with 2.0 per game, ranks third nationally.
DB Anthony Nixon: He's a two-year starter who led Maryland's freshmen in tackles last season.
DL Darius Kilgo: He's the most experienced member of a rebuilt defensive front.
