There’s a reason college football games aren’t played on paper…or on a computer.

On Saturday afternoon, Maryland (2-0) will host Temple (0-2) in the final non-conference game of the season for the Terrapins. It’s a game that most believe Matt Canada and Co. will win with relative ease, improving to 3-0 before heading into B1G play.

Maryland is a 16.5-point favorite according to MyBookie and has been given a 90.8 percent chance to win based on ESPN’s Power Football Index. But one Vegas computer has generated a really odd outcome for the game.

Not only does the computer have the Owls pulling off a major upset, it has them as a two-touchdown winner on Saturday.

That would be a huge surprise in the college football world.

Maryland enters Saturday’s matchup beating No. 23 Texas and Bowling Green in the first two weeks of the season. Temple was defeated by FCS foe Villanova and Buffalo.

Saturday’s game is scheduled for a noon kickoff. We’ll see whether the Vegas computers can actually predict a massive upset in College Park.
