College football: D.C. area Week 2 preview
PENN STATE (0-1) at VIRGINIA (1-0)
Where: Scott Stadium, Charlottesville, Va.
TV/radio: Chs. 7, 2, 570 AM
Outlook: Penn State leads series 5-2 and won last meeting 35-14 in 2002. The Nittany Lions play their first road game under first-year coach Bill O'Brien and are coming off a 24-14 loss to Ohio in their opener. Virginia junior quarterback Michael Rocco moved into 13th place on the Cavaliers' career passing list with 3,125 yards. Virginia is 6-13 all-time against current members of the Big Ten but has won three straight against the conference — the 2005 Music City Bowl against Minnesota and meetings with Indiana in 2009 and 2011.
MARYLAND (1-0) at TEMPLE (1-0)
Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia
TV/radio: ESPNU, 980 AM
Outlook: Maryland leads series 6-1, though Temple won last year's meeting 38-7 in College Park. The Terrapins can match their win total from last season with a victory. Perry Hills tossed three interceptions in a 7-6 defeat of William & Mary, but still became the first true freshman quarterback to start a Maryland victory. The Owls, who rejoined the Big East this season, routed Villanova in their opener. Temple added former Boston College star Montel Harris as a graduate student transfer, though Harris is "day-to-day" with a hamstring injury according to coach Steve Addazio. Harris had five carries for 12 yards in the opener.
AUSTIN PEAY (0-1) at No. 15 VIRGINIA TECH (1-0)
When: 1:30 p.m.
Where: Lane Stadium, Blacksburg, Va.
TV/radio: ESPN3.com, 106.7 FM
Outlook: The last time the Hokies faced a lower-division opponent after playing on Labor Day, James Madison pulled off a stunner. Things are different two years later. Virginia Tech outlasted Georgia Tech 20-17 in overtime at home Monday and is well aware of the consequences of a listless performance. The Hokies will be without senior wide receiver D.J. Coles, a projected starter who will miss the entire season with a right knee injury. The school announced Thursday Coles will apply for a hardship waiver to receive a sixth season. The Governors went 3-8 a year ago and opened with a 49-10 loss at Western Kentucky.
