Military Bowl

Marshall (9-4) vs. Maryland (7-5), 2:30 p.m. (ESPN)

Line: Marshall by 2½

Series Record: First meeting


Maryland is looking to win its first bowl game under third-year coach Randy Edsall. It's the final game as a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference for the Terrapins, who move to the Big Ten in 2014. Marshall seeks to bounce back from a loss to Rice in the Conference USA title game and secure its first season with double-digit wins since 2002.


Marshall QB Rakeem Cato against Maryland's depleted secondary. Cato has thrown for 3,579 yards and has at least one TD pass in 31 consecutive games. The 6-foot junior will be facing a defensive backfield that has two sophomores and a freshman and is without injured starter Dexter McDougle (shoulder). But cornerback Jeremiah Johnson is back after missing much of the season with a fractured toe.


Marshall: WR Tommy Shuler has 97 catches for 1,097 yards and 9 TDs.

Maryland: QB C.J. Brown has thrown for 11 touchdowns and 2,045 yards and run for 12 scores and 538 yards despite missing two games with injuries.
