In NCAA Football Week 5, we will see Penn State Nittany Lions at Maryland Terrapins.
Penn State is 3-0 and the team is currently ranked 12th in the country. The Nittany Lions started the season with a dominating 79-7 win over Idaho and then went on to beat Buffalo and Pittsburgh. QB Sean Clifford is completing just 58.7% of his passes for 781 yards, 6 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions. The defense proves to be very good as it allows just 10 points per game.
Maryland is 2-1 after losing to Temple last week. The Terrapins, however, managed to beat Syracuse 63-20 in week 2 and surprised many people how they beat an elite team with ease. RB Anthony McFarland Jr. is the star of the offense with 225 rushing yards on 46 carries which is good for 5 touchdowns. QB Josh Jackson is completing just 51% of his passes for 724 yards, 8 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. The defense also looks very solid, giving up just 13.3 points per game.
Both teams will hope that they won’t make many mistakes on offense. The team that forces more turnovers will certainly win the game and I believe that Maryland has a big chance of not losing this one. They have playmakers on defense and they will make life harder for Sean Clifford who is yet to throw a pick.
