CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- No. 20 Clemson could face its most
difficult test since losing its opening game against Alabama when
the Tigers take on Maryland this weekend.
The Tigers (3-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) have won their
past three games, getting back into the national rankings. A win
over the energized Terps (3-1) would continue their momentum as
they try to live up to their position as ACC title favorites.
But it won't be easy. Maryland won two of its last three visits
to Clemson, including a 13-12 win in 2006. Clemson coach Tommy Bowden says he's still waiting for the Tigers to play up to their potential.
Maryland is seeking its fourth straight win over a ranked
opponent. It defeated ranked teams in Rutgers and Boston College
last season, then toppled then 23rd-ranked California two games
