STORRS, Conn. (AP) -- Connecticut welcomes former coach Randy Edsall and Maryland on Saturday.

The Huskies are coming off a bye week after a season-opening loss to Towson out of the Football Championship subdivision, while Maryland has jumped to a 2-0 start.

It will be the Terrapins' first road game of the season, and Edsall's first return to Connecticut since leaving the program after the 2011 Fiesta Bowl loss to Oklahoma. He says he expects to hear some boos.

Connecticut beat Maryland 24-21 a year ago in College Park, but the Terps played that game without quarterback C.J. Brown, who missed the season with a knee injury.

The team is averaging more than 580 yards in offense since his return.

The Huskies are hoping to avoid the program's first 0-2 start since 2002.
