Maryland has opened as a seven-point road favorite for Saturday's contest against Wake Forest, via OddsShark.
The Terps were also seven-point favorites against Virginia, a game they won by one point Saturday.
The ACC also announced the game will be airing on ESPNU at 3:30 p.m. ET. The time was previously known, but the channel is a new (and expected) development.
The Terps are 5-1, and would clinch their first bowl berth since 2010 with a win. Wake Forest is 3-3, and is coming off an impressive 15-point home win over NC State after losing 56-7 at Clemson. The Demon Deacons have a great defense, led by nose guard Nikita Whitlock, and have a good group of offensive playmakers (quarterback Tanner Price, running back Josh Harris and wide receiver Michael Campanaro) who have yet to really gel this season.
Maryland currently sits in third place in the ACC Atlantic, while Wake Forest is sixth out of the seven teams.
