Football fever temperature: 55. The Terrapins have some good skill players in Brown, Diggs and a stable of running backs that should at least make their move into the rough-and-tumble Big Ten East interesting.
Coach: Mark Dantonio (eighth year).
2013: 13-1, 8-0. Bowl game: Defeated Stanford 24-20 in the Rose Bowl.

Schedule notes: The Spartans play at Oregon (Sept. 6) and face Nebraska and Purdue from the Big Ten West. Their rematch against Ohio State comes Nov. 8.

2013: 7-5, 4-4. Bowl game: Ineligible.
Starters returning: Offense 7, defense 7.
Top returnees: QB Christian Hackenberg (134.0 efficiency rating), RB Zach Zwinak (989 rushing yards).
