WAKE FOREST (3-2, 1-2 ACC) at MARYLAND (2-2, 0-0)
Where: Byrd Stadium
TV/radio: ESPNU, 980 AM
Outlook: Maryland leads series 42-17-1, and the home team has won the last five meetings. The Terrapins come out of their bye week relatively healthy. The same cannot be said for the Demon Deacons, who lost wideout Michael Campanaro (38 receptions, 429 yards) last week to a broken hand. Maryland freshman Stefon Diggs ranks second in the ACC in all-purpose yards per game (160.5), while senior defensive end Joe Vellano is second in the league in tackles for loss per game (1.63) and ranks 14th in school history with 24.5 TFL for his career. Maryland has won four straight conference openers, its longest such streak since 1981-85.
