THREE TERPS KEYS

1. Who’s under center? — Maryland quarterback Jordan Steffy (concussion) will be a game-time decision, meaning there’s a decent chance sophomore Chris Turner will make his first career start. Turner led the Terps to a comeback victory last week but would face a different challenge against the blitz-happy Yellow Jackets.

2. QB on the other side — Redshirt junior Taylor Bennett does not even crack the top 100 nationally in passing efficiency (96.58), and the Yellow Jackets rank 113th nationally in passing offense (146.2 yards a game). With QB questions on both sides, it could easily turn into a low-scoring scrum.

3. Choice cuts — Georgia Tech tailback Tashard Choice was limited by a sore hamstring in the Yellow Jackets’ two losses but rebounded to run for 145 yards last week against Clemson. He will pose a challenge to the Maryland rush defense, which held Rutgers’ Ray Rice under 100 yards last week.
