On Thursday night, Week 5 of the college football season kicked off with a battle between Memphis and Navy. The Midshipmen jumped out to an early lead before the Tigers roared back and walked out with a 35-23 win.

The weekend of games continues with four games on Friday night - two of which involve ranked teams.

Perhaps the best game of the night takes place from College Park, Maryland as the Terrapins take on Big Ten foe Penn State. The No. 12-ranked Nittany Lions come to Maryland for a pivotal match-up in their conference season-openers.

Maryland jumped out to a hot start to the season, scoring at least 63 points in each of its first two games - including a win over then-No. 21 Syracuse. The Terrapins came crashing down to earth two weeks ago with a 20-17 loss to Temple.

Meanwhile, Penn State looked solid in its first two games of the season before suffering a scare against in-state rival Pitt. The Nittany Lions walked out with a 17-10 win to keep their undefeated season alive.

Both Maryland and Penn State had two weeks to prepare for tonight's game.
