The Boilermakers rallied in the second half for a 24-14 victory over Nevada last Saturday and will be trying to win back-to-back games for the first time ever under fourth-year head coach Darrell Hazell, who is 0-8 in that role at Purdue.

Unbeaten Maryland, which won just three games a year ago, can surpass that total on Saturday when it hosts Purdue in the Big Ten Conference opener for both teams. The Terrapins, who have had two weeks to prepare for the contest, have scored 123 points through their first three games, the second-most in program history to start a season.

Maryland is one of only two FBS schools along with Western Michigan to not have committed a turnover this season.

The Terrapins defeated the Boilermakers, 24-7, in the 2006 Champs Sports Bowl in the only previous meeting between the schools.

Purdue LT Martesse Patterson is out indefinitely after getting arrested and charged Wednesday for felony battery for allegedly punching a former teammate.
