(WJLA) - Very rarely is there such a high-powered match-up in women's college basketball this early in the season, but Friday night, a pair of titans will clash in College Park.

The Connecticut Huskies will carry their national #1 ranking to the Comcast Center to take on the #6 Maryland Terrapins.

Maryland is coming off back-to-back decisive wins over South Florida and Loyola to open their season. Friday's game will mark their third game against the defending national champions in the past year.

However, the Terps are 0-2 against Geno Auriemma's squad all time.

Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.
