One usual rule for evaluating Byrd Stadium crowds is to wait until a half hour after kickoff.

That said, it doesn’t look like it will be a big gathering.


Look, of course, is relative. The remnants of the pyrotechnics are hovering overhead and have limited visibility even more than the lousy weather.

Maryland, by the way, has won the toss and is deferring. Guess the players followed Ralph’s instructions this time.

Kickoff coming in a minute.
