N.C. State tailback T.A. McLendon
versus
Maryland linebacker E.J. Henderson

At 5'11" and 214 pounds, McLendon is a freshman in name only after rushing for 862 yards and 15 touchdowns. He will be tested against the 6'2", 250-pound Henderson, the 2001 ACC defensive player of the year, who started the year slowly after having off-season back surgery but has lately spurred the Terrapins' defense. Since losing to Florida State 37-10 on Sept. 14, Maryland has allowed only 57 points in six games. Henderson, a senior, has made more solo tackles (74) than the number of total tackles (solo and assisted) by any teammate.
