Breakdown: Notre Dame leads series 1-0 and won lone meeting 22-0 in 2002 in East Rutherford, N.J. The Terrapins enter the final quarter of their disastrous first season under coach Randy Edsall, whose career record is now below .500 (76-77), by facing a Fighting Irish team that’s won six of its last seven. Maryland has yet to defeat a team with its regular starting quarterback available and is winless against major-college opponents since its Labor Day defeat of a depleted Miami team. Notre Dame wide receiver Michael Floyd has caught a touchdown in four of the last five games.
