Ranking the 2011 BC football schedule by difficulty, 6th-1st

3 of 7

5.) at Maryland
October 29, 2011 | Week 9 | College Park, MD

The Terps had a good bounce-back season last year in Ralph Friedgen’s final go, and though the coach has changed, a lot of the talent hasn’t. Randy Edsall has some players to work with in Maryland, and with this being a road game, the Terps have a reasonable chance of knocking the Eagles off. I would imagine that unless the seasons for these two teams break in totally opposite directions, Boston College probably will be slight underdogs in this one (at least, if I were drawing up the spreads right now, that’s how I’d see it).
