Maryland @ Northwestern
What to Know
The Maryland Terrapins and the Northwestern Wildcats will face off at 7:30 p.m. ET Oct. 24 at Ryan Field to kick off their 2020 seasons. Returning after a rocky 3-9 season, the Terrapins are aiming to prove that the past does not define them. Likewise, coming off of an uninspired 3-9 last-season record, Northwestern has set their aspirations higher this year.
A couple last-season offensive stats to keep an eye on: Maryland ranked 17th worst in the nation with respect to passing yards per game last season, where the team accrued only 174 on average (bottom 88%). The Wildcats experienced some struggles of their own as they were third worst when it came to passing touchdowns last season, with the squad coming up with only six overall. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
The Maryland sideline is surely aware that they're the underdogs in this one. Perhaps they'll be able to flip the script and come out with a big victory.

What you need to know about Georgia Tech
When we last saw the Yellow Jackets, they were absorbing a 73-7 beatdown from No. 1 Clemson. Georgia Tech gave up 671 yards of offense to Clemson, including 404 passing yards and five first-half touchdown passes by quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Georgia Tech mustered only 204 yards in the destruction, with quarterback Jeff Sims passing for just 81 yards and a touchdown.
Georgia Tech has looked good at times this season, knocking off Louisville 46-27 and downing Florida State 16-13. Sims has passed for 1,025 yards and six touchdowns, and running back Jahmyr Gibbs has rushed for 299 yards and two touchdowns. Georgia Tech has also fared well against Boston College over the years, winning four of its last six meetings against the Eagles.
What you need to know about Boston College
The Eagles dropped a 40-14 decision to Virginia Tech last weekend. Quarterback Phil Jurkovec threw for 345 yards and two touchdowns with two interceptions in the loss, a game in which Boston College turned the ball over five times.
Both of Boston College's losses this season have come against ranked opponents, as Virginia Tech was ranked No. 23 and North Carolina was ranked 12th when edging the Eagles 26-22. Jurkovec has compiled 1,526 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions in 2020. Despite their most recent setback, the Eagles will be confident they can secure the victory on Saturday. That's because Boston College is 4-1 against the spread in its last five games at home.
