Maryland knows it must stop Wisconsin's run game

Maryland head coach Randy Edsall only attempted one pass in his four years as a quarterback while at Syracuse University. On Saturday he showed that he may have been a pretty darn good wide receiver or defensive back, as he stretched to catch a pass from Iowa’s quarterback Jake Ruddock on the sidelines.
