College Game Day Week 1, Season 2011 Week 1 YOU ARE LOOKING LIVE AT BYRD STADIUM the home of the Maryland Terrapins. Where today there Terrapins host the Kentucky Wildcats in what looks to be a very good game. In last year’s game Maryland pulled out a close victory over the Wildcats. The Wildcats are led by the all word athlete Randall Cobb who last year played wide receiver, but this year he will be playing running back. On defense Kentucky Wildcats are led by Danny Trevathan who will need to make the big plays on defense for the Wildcats. Maryland appears to have the advantage because of their numerous skill players like RB Davin Megget and WR Torrey Smith. The question with the Terrapins is QB Jamarr Robinson who is only rated as an 80. The Terrapins definitely have an advantage in the kicking game with Nick Ferrara. A rival ACC coach's pre season comments about Nick Ferrara, I wish I had a kicker like Ferrara because I know if the game was on the line, I know he will make the kick.
