NC State is the favorite but not by much, and this game, according to oddsmakers, is up for grabs. Maryland should have a significant advantage as NC State has one quarterback injured and another has transferred. In contrast, the Terrapins starter Taulia Tagovailoa has had time to get healthy and will start in this game.
