West Virginia starting cornerback Ishmael Banks will be suspended for the Mountaineers' first three games because of an academic issue, West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen announced Monday. That means Banks will be unavailable when the Mountaineers play Maryland and arguably one of the best receiving corps in the country Sept. 13. The 6-foot, 184-pound Banks started every game for West Virginia as a redshirt junior last season and had four tackles during the Mountaineers' loss to the Terps last September.

Back for a second season, we'll be previewing each of Maryland's football games by conducting a Q&A with a reporter who covers the Terps' next opponent. This week, we traded emails with Mike Casazza , who covers West Virginia football for the Charleston Daily Mail. Be sure to check out  more of his WVU coverage here  before the Terps and Mountaineers kick off Saturday at noon in College Park.   Tracking the Terps: Heading into the season it didn't seem like this West Virginia team was going to be a powerhouse.

Former Dunbar star William Crest's career in West Virginia has gotten off to an unusual start. While it appears unlikely the quarterback will have the opportunity to start with the Mountaineers this season, coach Dana Holgorsen has decided  Crest likely won't be redshirted . Perhaps even more surprising, however, was the reported sight of Crest fielding punts during practice this month. Apparently, Crest jogged out to the field with other returners on his own, not at a coach's urging.

As Maryland prepared for No. 8 West Virginia, it might have comforted Terps fans - but only a little - that there have been other occasions in recent seasons in which the team entered games as a multi-touchdown underdog and came away with its dignity intact, if not with a win. The Terps (2-1, 0-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) headed to Morgantown to face a Mountaineers team (2-0, 0-0 Big 12 Conference) favored by almost four touchdowns Saturday. West Virginia is averaging a gaudy 55.5 points and 612 yards per game, third in the nation.

There's LSU and Alabama and then everyone else in the SEC. From the start of the season, everyone was pointing to these two as the cream of the crop in the SEC. Armed with stellar defenses and impressive wins, both can make a case as the top team in the nation. It was a tough week for the Big East. After spending most of the week scrambling from the aftermath of the defections of Syracuse and Pittsburgh, the conference was back in the news after it had to apologize for a blown call that cost Toledo a victory against the Orange.

A few hours before kickoff, Pat Garvin told her son he would have an interception return for a touchdown Saturday against Maryland, the school she wanted him to play for three years ago out of Loyola. Terence Garvin , West Virginia's junior safety, didn't hear anything his mother - or anyone else - was saying. It only got worse when walked onto the field at Byrd Stadium. "I was too amped up. The first five plays, I was talking to everyone," Garvin recalled a few hours later, after helping the 18th-ranked Mountaineers hold off the Terps , 37-31.

When Maryland plays at West Virginia on Saturday, the two schools will continue a rivalry appearing to possess all the elements required for healthy football hostility. There is history - 48 meetings dating back to 1919. There is proximity - the campuses are within a four-hour drive. In many years, there has been competitive balance. West Virginia leads the series 25-21-2. The Mountaineers have won the past six meetings, with Maryland's last victory coming in the 2004 Gator Bowl.

Even though Calvert Hall All-Metro football players Da'Quan Davis and Trevor Williams have been playing football together since they were 12, they never set out to go to Penn State together. They started playing together at Roland Park Middle School, moved on to Calvert Hall and committed to West Virginia. A couple weeks ago, they decided separately to decommit from West Virginia. When other coaches came calling, Penn State appealed to both of them. Davis and Williams made their official visits to Happy Valley over the weekend with their families and orally committed Sunday.

When Geno Smith and Tavon Austin departed West Virginia for the NFL after last season, they left their names in the school's record books and their legacies firmly planted in Morgantown, W.Va. Filling their cleats isn't easy, but redshirt freshman quarterback Ford Childress and true freshman slot receiver Daikiel Shorts are doing their best to create their own history with the Mountaineers, who play Maryland at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday. "Geno left some huge shoes to fill," Childress said in a telephone interview Tuesday.

Imagine the football field as a chess board, its synthetic green grass replaced with two-toned squares. Picture wideouts as rooks rocketing up and down the edges of the board and backs as bishops slashing through a front line of pawns. Tight ends and slot receivers are knights, slipping out to seize smaller chunks of ground. The quarterback, of course, is king, often times stationary but absolutely invaluable. Where does Tavon Austin fit into the NFL's weekly high-speed, hard-hitting chess matches?

A year ago, James Franklin was heir to the throne. Maryland's animated offensive coordinator had a contract entitling him to $1 million if not elevated by the university to head coach by Jan. 2, 2012. But the landscape shifted beneath Franklin's feet. A new athletic director arrived who was no fan of such "coach-in-waiting" agreements. With the succession plan envisioned by former AD Debbie Yow in jeopardy, Franklin left to become Vanderbilt's head coach. As Maryland practiced to play No. 18 West Virginia at Byrd Stadium on Saturday, the rival programs stood as testaments that life — and particularly coaching succession plans — don't always go as planned.

All the early-season attention paid to a Maryland team with a new coach and gaudy new uniforms couldn't save the Terps Saturday from a rejuvenated old nemesis that had won five in a row against them and played as if it was its birthright to continue that streak. In losing, 37-31, to No. 18 West Virginia, Maryland (1-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) missed an opportunity to reverse its fortunes against the Mountaineers (3-0, 0-0 Big East) with a win that could have kick-started its season and pushed the Terps into the national rankings.
