QB Taulia Tagovailoa has opted out of this game. Huge blow for Maryland after he initially said he planned to play. Expect Billy Edwards, Jr. to start behind center.

There were rumblings about this a few weeks ago, but I dismissed them since it’s pretty cut-and-dry that he’s used up all of his eligibility. But these days, I guess you never know.

Perfect example of what I was referring to in the Conference Realignment thread. ;)

 

Not sure what kind of case he'll try to make for another year, but in 2019 with Alabama in two of the 5 games he appeared in he didn't attempt a single pass, it was just handing the ball off to kill the clock. Curious how he and his family felt about him getting in 5 games and thus losing his redshirt season. Maybe he'll try to say Saban did him dirty.

Thing is, he’d need both Locksley and Saban to sign off on an extra year. So not sure blaming Nick would be a winning course of action.

Yeah, but I don't see what other argument he has outside of saying he was forced into a game by his coach, when the two QBs in front of him were not injured, to take meaningless snaps when he would have preferred to take a redshirt season. (and even that might not succeed)

Auburn enters this game as 4.5-point favorites. ESPN gives them a 52.2% chance to win.

There are no notable injuries for Maryland in this game, so the only players missing will be the opt-outs and transfers.

Also worth noting that they’ll be using in-helmet communication in this game. Auburn was also provided with that opportunity, but turned it down due to lack of preparation time with the technology.

Fantastic first drive for Maryland, led by Roman Hemby.

And Maryland’s defense forces a 3 and out on their first drive. An ideal start for the Terps.

First 50/50 bounce of the game goes to Maryland on Octavian Smith, Jr.’s fumble. Terps driving into Auburn territory again.

Hell of a start for Maryland and Billy Edwards in this game. Clearly came in with excellent preparation. Quick 14-0 lead.

Auburn still without a first down. Two 3 and outs forced by Maryland’s defense.

Cameron Edge in at QB for the third drive, which is what was expected.

Just like that, it’s a blowout. Shades of Virginia Tech in the Pinstripe Bowl, except that Auburn isn’t missing half of their team.

This Auburn offense isn’t built to come back from deficits like this. And they look absolutely shell shocked.

Well, if Auburn has to rely on fake punts to move the ball Maryland will be in good shape today.

Maryland’s defense is playing at a really high level today.
