Home and away

A quick nugget I just looked up for some things running Saturday’s online edition: California is 7-0 in its home openers under Jeff Tedford.

A look at those games, just to gauge the quality of the opponent:

2002: Cal 70, Baylor 22
2003: Cal 34, Southern Mississippi 2
2004: Cal 41, New Mexico State 14
2005: Cal 41, Sacramento State 3
2006: Cal 42, Minnesota 17
2007: Cal 45, Tennessee 31
2008: Cal 38, Michigan State 31

Well, that’s a lot of points. Maryland, by the way, hasn’t scored 34 points in a home opener since 2003.

But how about a true road opener (i.e. not Notre Dame ‘02 or Navy ‘05) under Ralph Friedgen?

2001: Maryland 27, Wake Forest 20
2002: Maryland 48, West Virginia 17
2003: Northern Illinois 20, Maryland 13 (OT)
2004: West Virginia 19, Maryland 16 (OT)
2005: Maryland 22, Wake Forest 12
2006: West Virginia 45, Maryland 24
2007: Maryland 26, Florida International 10
2008: Middle Tennessee 24, Maryland 14
