Maryland will look to bounce back after an ugly week one win against William & Mary when they travel to Philly to visit Temple.

Even though the season is still new, the Maryland Terrapins football program has their work cut out for them in terms of creating buzz in College Park.

An ugly Week 1 performance against an FCS team, paired with the news of the Terps basketball program has landed Xavier transfer Dez Wells, means that few are antipicating Saturday's game against Temple.

The Owls will host the Terrapins at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia on the heels of an impressive 41-10 victory over city rival Villanova.

Maryland enters the game looking to rebound after barely squaking past William & Mary to open their season, winning 7-6 after being down 6-0 at halftime and scoring a game-winning touchdown early in the fourth quarter.

After Maryland won the previous six games against Temple, the Owls responded last season with an impressive 38-7 victory over the Terrapins. Temple will look to prove to skeptics that they're a football program that belongs in a BCS conference with a similar performance in 2012.

As a true freshman under center, Maryland quarterback Perry Hills struggled in his first career college start against the Tribe, completing 16 of 24 for 145 yards. Now, up against an upstart Owls team, Hills may find his second career start even more challenging.

On the other side of the ball, Temple's starting running back Montel Harris is day-to-day with a hamstring injury. The senior suffered the injury against Villanova, and sat out the second half of the game after gaining just 12 yards on five carries.

Game time, TV channel: noon, ESPNU

Point Spread: Temple (-10)
