* THIS SATURDAY: Vs. Wake Forest, Winston-Salem, N.C., 1 p.m.

* PREVIOUS GAME: The Terps were beaten by the bomb, allowing touchdown passes of 46 and 82 yards to Georgia Tech in a 34-10 Atlantic Coast Conference loss . . . Wake Forest (1-4) lost 24-10 to North Carolina.

* KEY STATISTICS: In their last two games, the Terps have allowed 661 yards passing. The Demon Deacons passed for 258 yards in a loss to the Tar Heels.

* QUOTE: Coach Joe Krivak: "They did the thing we sort of dreaded. They took a couple of shots deep at us and beat us deep twice, and, boy, that really made it easy."

NAVY (0-5)

* THIS SATURDAY: Vs. Temple, Philadelphia, noon.

* PREVIOUS GAME: Once again, the Midshipmen had a lead, and once again, they lost. Ahead 7-6 at halftime, Navy watched helplessly as Air Force rolled to a 46-6 victory.

Temple (1-5) lost 10-9 to West Virginia.

* KEY STATISTICS: Although it was the 10th straight win for the Falcons over Navy, this was the most lopsided game in the history of the service academy rivalry.

* INJURIES: No major injuries.

* QUOTE: Coach George Chaump, on the decision to start Kubiak: "Sometimes you more or less have to gamble. He has a good arm. Someday he'll be an excellent quarterback, but right now he's just a plebe."
