COLLEGE PARK -  In two straight games, Maryland running back Brandon Ross has taken a short screen pass, maneuvered through traffic and outrun the defense for a long touchdown down the left sideline. Ross fumbled three times during the Terps' first two games and has shared playing time in recent weeks. But the 5-foot-10, 205-pound junior has made some big plays when called upon. Ross, who ran for 776 yards last year, had five catches for 50 yards against West Virginia on Sept.

Running back Wes Brown: The Good Counsel alum is the Terps" largest tailback at 210 pounds. He was Stefon Diggs' teammate in high school, and the two are close on the field. "If he's mad, I calm him down. I treat him like he's my little brother," Brown said. Kicker Brad Craddock: The Australian was mostly off limits to reporters during the preseason because he is a freshman.There is often trepidation about inserting a true freshman kicker into the lineup, but everybody has to start somewhere.

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. - If you're a Terps fan, you just hope that Dexter McDougle, who has seemed to get better each game this season, can rebound from a shoulder injury. McDougle was stellar in the 32-21 win over Connecticut , with two interceptions - one of which he returned for a touchdown  - and eight tackles. Maryland seemed hopeful about the senior's third-quarter injury, but the team has not offered an official diagnosis/prognosis yet. The Terps have already lost one starting cornerback, Jeremiah Johnson, for much of the season, though Johnson does expect to return from a broken toe bone . The starting-time temperature Saturday was 62 degrees, but it dropped into the 50s or even the high 40s by game's end. Maryland players had issues with cramping in the season's first two games in much warmer weather.

COLLEGE PARK -  Shortly after Maryland's 52-7 win over James Madison, Terps senior quarterback C.J. Brown sat in front of a group of media and called his performance against the Dukes "unacceptable.

But to Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, Brown “did a really good of managing the offense” while making some savvy plays that don't show up on the stat sheet.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The game against Indiana on Saturday was a chance for Maryland to make a first impression, an early opportunity for the Terps to show they can be a competitive team in the Big Ten Conference. "We showed that Maryland football is as good as anybody else," Terps inside linebacker Cole Farrand said after Maryland beat Indiana, 37-15, at Memorial Stadium. Before the season, Big Ten writers picked the Terps to finish just fifth out of the seven teams in the conference's East Division.

Chants of "Let's go Maryland" began to break out at Indiana's Memorial Stadium around the midpoint of the fourth quarter. Most of the Hoosiers fans had already cleared out by that point. The Terps will face some great challenges in the coming weeks. But Maryland was dominant in its first conference game as a member of the Big Ten, beating Indiana, 37-15, just a week after the Hoosiers upset No. 18 Missouri. Indiana (2-2) entered Saturday as four-point favorites. But the Terps (4-1)

COLLEGE PARK - The transformation took place late last season, on what started out as a dreary November afternoon at Virginia Tech's Lane Stadium. Maryland went into Blacksburg thought to be no more than road kill for the Hokies and emerged with a bit of a swagger after a 27-24 overtime victory. When the 2014 Terps make their Big Ten debut Saturday at Indiana, there is a growing confidence about playing on the road. Maryland (3-1) has won four straight true road games, including wins at South Florida on Sept.

COLLEGE PARK -  Maryland offensive coordinator Mike Locksley looks for all of his tight ends to be “three-pronged. " He wants them to be capable of playing as a traditional tight end, out at wide receiver or detached from the line of scrimmage, whether in the slot, as an H-back or somewhere else in the formation. Andrew Isaacs was the closest thing the Terps had to a "three-pronged" tight end. Isaacs only had two catches this season. But the sophomore flashed skills as a pass-catcher during preseason practice, had been consistently praised by teammates and coaches for the improvements he had made as a blocker, and he was playing around 45 snaps per game on offense.

Offensive coordinator Mike Locksley reiterated Wednesday that C.J. Brown is the Terps' starting quarterback and that Caleb Rowe is his backup.

COLLEGE PARK - Cole Farrand knows how Maryland's defense is supposed to look. He has an image in his mind as a perpetual reminder. The junior said he can still visualize fellow linebacker L.A. Goree "ripping the ball" from the grasp of a West Virginia ball carrier, one of six takeaways forced by the Terps in their 37-0 victory at M&T Bank Stadium. That was five weeks ago, but it feels like the distant past for the Terps (5-2, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who have lost two out of three heading into Saturday's homecoming game against Clemson (6-1, 4-1 ACC)
