Study Hall: Syracuse 20, Maryland 3

Confused? Visit the Advanced Stats glossary here. Or just skip to the words. I won't be offended. (Okay, I'll only be a little offended.)

For the second straight year, Maryland's defense seems to be collapsing under the weight of a collapsed offense. Meanwhile, Syracuse allowed 56 points to Georgia Tech ... and then allowed three points combined in the next two weeks. Makes sense.
