The NCAA football 2013 live stream and television schedule brings most of the top 25 teams into the spotlight on Saturday, Oct. 26, including a previous top three team looking to bounce back after a blowout loss. It will be Clemson visiting Maryland, with the Tigers favored heavily, and hoping to prove their worth after a loss to FSU at home. The latest live streaming and televised football game is presented by ESPN's sports networks.
According to ESPN.com’s report on Oct. 25, Clemson is now looking to bounce back and show what they’re made of for the second half of the college football season. The team lost badly at their own stadium a week ago, as Florida State came in and showed them up 51-14. Quarterback Tajh Boyd was unable to show his best stuff during the game, and now the team is behind an FSU team that nobody saw coming. Until now. The Tigers quarterback told ESPN:
“They're a really great program, but they're not 37 points better than us. It just happened to be like that. We had things that didn't go our way and it just snowballed from there. It's college football and anything can happen, but that was the most disappointing thing. We didn't put our best foot forward at all.”
However, Boyd and crew are prepared for their next game against Maryland. The quarterback added:
“We had the senior group talk and just said we have to put it behind us. As disappointing as it was and as high as the expectations were, we still can achieve a great season. That’s what great teams do. They bounce back. They rebound.”
Clemson is now ranked No. 9, falling from their previous all-time high of No. 3 after the devastating loss. They currently rank in the top 25 in the nation in overall passing yards, and their “points against” defense, holding teams to 21.1 a game. That stat would’ve been a bit lower if not for FSU’s huge rout.
Today, Clemson will play a 5-2 Maryland team that is 1-2 in the ACC. Maryland was ranked in the top 25 but fell out after losses to Florida State and Wake Forest last week, 34-10. To their credit, the Terrapins have yet to lose at home, but today’s game as well as their next two against Syracuse and Virginia Tech, could be a bumpy spot in their schedule.
Maryland doesn’t rank impressively anywhere in the nation, although they are 29th in terms of overall passing yards, which is slightly below Clemson’s ranking. Further adding to the Terps’ struggle will be the fact they lost both Stefon Diggs and Deon Long to broken legs last week in their loss to Wake.
Basically, two teams will play today hoping to bounce back from tough losses in last week’s NCAA action. Clemson has the better shot to do so and come out firing on all cylinders again to show they still belong in the top 10 in the country. Odds makers have Clemson favored to win by 17 points today, with the over/under set at 59 points at various sports books. Weather is expected to be mostly sunny, with a kickoff temperature around 55 degrees. Quarterbacks Tajh Body and Caleb Rowe are both listed as “probable” for the game.
