In its first Big Ten home game, Maryland lost, 52-24, to Ohio State on Saturday. From a Terps perspective, here is a look at what went well and what did not during the game. THE GOOD Kicker Brad Craddock Craddock hit a school-record 57-yard field goal and is one of just three kickers nationally yet to miss a field goal after 10 or more attempts this season. Craddock also had touchbacks on three of his five kickoffs Saturday. Wide receiver Marcus Leak Leak had a highlight-reel-type catch during the third quarter, jumping and reaching above an Ohio State defensive back for a 25-yard gain along the sideline and then holding onto the ball as he fell out of bounds.

On Saturday, Ravens players Torrey Smith and John Simon will both be in Indianapolis, as the Ravens get ready for Sunday's game against the Colts. But while Smith and Simon take care of their own Ravens-related responsibilities, both will also be tracking what happens between Maryland and Ohio State on Saturday in College Park. Smith starred at Maryland before being drafted in the second round of the 2011 NFL draft by the Ravens and still follows the team closely. “I don't know about the score, but I think we can beat them,” Smith said.

A gay couple from Ohio who were married in a medical jet on a tarmac at BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport earlier this month are now suing the governor and other officials of their home state in a bid to have their marriage recognized there. James Obergefell and John Arthur made the trip to Maryland on July 11 because same-sex marriage is not legal in Ohio. They did so in the special jet because Arthur suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, and can only travel under special medical conditions.

COLLEGE PARK - Randy Edsall's goal this week was to keep the pre-game preparation as routine as possible. The Maryland football coach told his team that Ohio State is just another opponent, that the Buckeyes have good players but the Terps do too. Nothing changed about Maryland's practice schedule. Edsall even turned down numerous interview requests because he did not want his players to see him doing anything different than he would during a normal week. But Edsall, his players and the rest of the program recognize the significance of Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State.

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 Bill Rabinowitz , Ohio State beat reporter for The Columbus Dispatch. Be sure to check out  more of their coverage here  before the Terps and Buckeyes kick off Saturday at noon for the first Big Ten game at Byrd Stadium. Tracking the Terps: Ohio State wasn't overly impressive when the Buckeyes came out this way to open against Navy, and J.T. Barrett looked like a freshman through the first two weeks of the season.

For Maryland, Saturday's home game against Ohio State is big, a chance to knock off one of the power teams in the Big Ten and an opportunity for the Terps to establish themselves even more as a viable threat in their new conference. Ohio State, though, is used to being the favorite -- with less prestigious teams looking to knock the Buckeyes off. “We're going to go there, and we're going to welcome them to the Big Ten,” Ohio State tight end Jeff Heuerman told reporters after the Buckeyes' practice Wednesday . “We're going to go on the road, and it's going to be a big game, and we're going to show them what Big Ten football is, and hopefully it'll come out in our favor.” This is Maryland's first conference home game as a member of the Big Ten. It comes against a perennial national championship contender and a team with arguably the richest history in the Big Ten. “They're saying it's one of the biggest games in Maryland history,” Heuerman said.

COLLEGE PARK - Three times last week, Ohio State defensive backs were left looking at the back of Cincinnati wide receiver Chris Moore's jersey as Moore crossed the goal line at the end of a long touchdown catch-and-run. Ohio State (3-1) is great in the front seven. The Buckeyes have experienced players at linebacker, and their defensive line may be as good as any in the country. The pass defense is Ohio State's "Achilles' heel," said Buckeyes coach Urban Meyer during a teleconference Tuesday.

On Saturday, Maryland will take the field with Ohio State, one of the power teams in the Big Ten Conference and one of the favorites to win the East Division. The Terps believe they have the talent to beat teams like the Buckeyes. This is their chance to prove it. A win also would put Maryland at 2-0 in conference play with likely only one team more talented than Ohio State remaining on the Terps' schedule. This is a big opportunity for Maryland and a big game for a number of reasons.

WASHINGTON - The presidential election is over and Sen. John Kerry has conceded defeat, but the wheels are nevertheless in motion in Ohio for a recount in the state that put President Bush over the top. The recount is being pressed even though the Kerry campaign has no hope or expectation of reversing the result. As of election night, the president carried Ohio by more than enough to avoid a mandatory retabulating of the votes. The tally gave Mr. Bush 51.1 percent to Mr. Kerry's 48.5 percent, far in excess of the one-quarter of 1 percent winning margin that under state law would require a recount.

COLLEGE PARK - When he's healthy, Braxton Miller is a star, a dynamic and multidimensional threat at quarterback and one of the top offensive weapons in the country. But even without Miller, who suffered a season-ending shoulder injury during preseason practice, Ohio State's offense is still gaining a lot of yards and scoring a lot of points in recent weeks. The play of Miller's replacement, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, is one of the primary reasons why. Slowing Barrett down and trying to force the young quarterback into mistakes will be key for Maryland heading into Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State at Byrd Stadium.

The Terps (4-1) beat Indiana, 37-15, in Bloomington on Saturday.

The Buckeyes lost star quarterback Braxton Miller to a season-ending injury during preseason practice. However, his replacement, redshirt freshman J.T. Barrett, has thrown for 642 yards and 10 touchdowns with just one interception in Ohio State's last two games while completing 74 percent of his passes.
