MARYLAND (WYSR-TV) — For the first time since 2010, the Syracuse football team will start the season with back to back road games. The last time SU won two games on the road to start the year was two decades ago. That’s the challenge that faces the Orange as they take on Maryland at Capital One Field.
For redshirt junior running back Abdul Adams, returning to his home state to face the terps is special to him.
“It is definitely exciting. You know I got a lot of family members coming out. I got a lot of friends coming out from the neighborhood. They are coming out to support You know that is big. It is big for the state as while. They got a lot of guys from Maryland on their team. We got a lot of guys from the DMV on our team. It is going to be a good one. I am going to approach it the same way I approach any other game. I am going to come in and do my job. We are not going to go out and do nothing crazy. You know we are just going to play our game,” Adams said.
It will be the 37th all-time meeting between the two schools. The Orange has won four out of the last five against the Terps.
