Maryland has an opportunity to open the season 4-0 for only the second time since 2001 when it plays host to Purdue today. The Terps offense has been excellent so far, ranking third in the Big Ten in scoring (41.0 points per game) and second in rushing. This is an important game for both head coaches. Maryland's DJ Durkin can keep momentum rolling in his first season. Purdue's Darrell Hazell is 2-22 in Big Ten games and has yet to win more than one in a season. If the Boilermakers win, they'll be 3-1 overall this season and have visions of reaching a bowl game.
