Texas Tech transfer, McLane Carter, was named the starting quarterback in Week 1 to take on UMass. He led Rutgers and it eventually looked like they had a quarterback running the series. This was short lived later Carter suffered a concussion a week after.
Rutgers have been forced to return to their starting QB Artur Sitkowski, from past year. If you followed Rutgers you are well conscious of how bad Sitkowski was. He had been the worst fulltime starting quarterback at the FBS, having chucked 4 touchdowns plus a whopping 18 interceptions on just 49.1% completions.
Sitkowski will probably be back in the saddle from Maryland in Week 6. Carter has not been cleared to go back to play with, so Sitkowski will be called on . Its gone for Sitkowski far but that isnt saying much. Sitkowski has thrown a touchdown with 2 interceptions on 64.7percent completions. So that is something to build for him, his completion percentage is up greatly. Throwing more interceptions is something that he must have under control.
Josh Jackson, former Virginia Tech QB, has been good for Maryland this season with 789 yards death with 8 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Jackson placed on a display for the Hokies a couple of seasons past, as he showcased his own ability. He passed for 20 touchdowns and 9 interceptions, while running 324 yards and 6 scores onto the floor. Jackson was away against Penn State, but look for him to get right back on course in dominant style from Rutgers.
The Scarlet Knights enter 91st from the country with 414 yards allowed per game. Theyve been getting torched with nearly 200 yards surrendered a match around the floor. The Terrapins are effective at running the ball and also have accumulated 223 rushing yards per game for 25th in the FBS.
Look for Maryland to assert themselves on the ground and take over the match. This looks like a great spot for freshman Anthony McFarland Jr. to go off for large amounts. Cover and maryland likely have this one to win the spread.
