Noon at Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia.
TV: ESPNU. Radio: WTEM (980 AM). Records: Terrapins 1-0; Owls 1-0.
MOVING ON: Perry Hills didn’t exactly get off to the best start in his first college game. He threw three interceptions, missed a wide-open receiver in the end zone and struggled on the long ball. But taking the positives — 66.7 percent completion percentage, a game-winning touchdown drive with correct reads — and flushing the aforementioned negatives will best serve the freshman quarterback. He and his coaches have seemed confident throughout the week, and Hills’s teammates have rallied around their young leader.
IMPROVEMENT?: Coach Randy Edsall has preached the importance of improving between the season’s first and second weeks. Twelve true freshmen earned their collegiate debuts against William & Mary, and they must demonstrate marked progress this time around, especially as the Terps crawl toward full health. Even veteran players such as cornerback Dexter McDougle, who was flagged for three pass interference penalties versus the Tribe, will be seeking a rebound.
