Maryland beat Texas last year and lost to Ohio State 52-51 in Week 11 in a game they really should have won (and had everyone picking Michigan to beat the Buckeyes the next week). Syracuse is going to be fixated on our game the next week at home at night. A noon game on the road the week before is trap city. Also remember Maryland has VTs old QB Josh Jackson (ACC Freshman of the Year in 2017) starting in 2019
Texas finished as a Top 10 team, and didn't have #1 coming to town next week to look forward to, including possible College Gameday in what might could be the biggest home game in Syracuse football history.
Syracuse is replacing key pieces, but are also not a team that can show up unfocused against Maryland and still expect to win ugly on the road. If they are not 100% focused, they'll probably lose iko. Just my thoughts
Wouldn't surprise me. Maryland has been really inconsistent

and a mess at times with scandal and key injuries, but they have more talent than Cuse, have pulled off some notable upsets (and near upsets) recently, and certainly handled their business last week in a more convincing manner.
It has to be pretty concerning for Cuse how bad their offense was against Liberty. 5.0 yards per attempt and 4.4 yards per rush are really bad, especially against an opponent that should be physically overmatched.
