They need to play every year.
MD should still be in the ACC if we’re trying to be realistic here.
If MD alternated VA and WVA I would be a very happy Terps fan. If they played both each year I would be even happier.
Would like to see Maryland play Navy once in a while, too. They’re practically next-door neighbors.l
I would take that a step further, Maryland should drop down the the sub division 1-AA level. Just maybe, they will be able to win some games. Simply look at their past history over the last 5 years. As an avid supporter of this program….I’m tired of the promises of a winning program, simply look the number of head coaches that have come through.
There was a time when Maryland was good, moving to the BIG has not been easy plus the Terps are more of a basketball school then football. BIG has invested a lot in Maryland so I highly doubt dropping to FCS level will ever happen. They will come around, may be good for 7-9 wins a season though.
No Maryland should not drop down their football program! They have beaten once in three years every team in their conference except Ohio State, and we have been to bowl games twice with average coaching. Better years are ahead of us, will we rival OSU and Michigan, probably not but we will be better than Rutgers and Indiana.
I wish they would play the week after thanksgiving the same time as Georgia v Ga TEch, S. Carolina v Clemson, Fl v FL St, etc. The trend that needs to grow beyond the SEC and ACC. Iowa v Iowa St should move their game back in the season as well, Penn State v Pitt.
Pitt should end with Penn State and WVU. I don’t care if they’re in separate conferences.
I think Virginia should end the season against Va. Tech, not Maryland.
Penn State, Rutgers, West Virginia, Maryland, UConn, and Notre Dame should all be in the ACC.
Thanksgiving day rivalries:
For Thanksgiving weekend, I also agree with Iowa-Iowa State, Nebraska can pair up with Missouri, Arkansas with Memphis (or Tulsa), LSU with Tulane, and Michigan State with Cincinnati.

Friday Night Lights… is about HIGH SCHOOL football. This is about “filling television inventory”.
Welp, looks like FIU will be losing on homecoming next year. HBTD!
nice Small 10 OOC game. Gotta love the Small 10
nice regional match up
Terps won 2013 game at VT in OT by that score, lead series 16-15. Arguably Edsall’s best win
Unlike the Big 12, the ACC is ran by adults who realize these kinds of games are still important even when one school decides to leave the conference. Good job.
This is a good series for both schools. Grew up in Maryland, now live in Virginia so I will catch an earful from the Hokie faithful as people in Hampton Roads love the Hokies. Hopefully Maryland can get a future series with Virginia.
The 1993 game in Blacksburg featured a huge on-field brawl in the pouring rain.
Shame Maryland could not have worked out a H&H with a former North Carolina based rival, instead of Charlotte’s start-up program.
Another nice addition to the 49ers’ schedule along with UNC and Duke.
what is timetable for UNCC to get their stadium expanded? Will it get to 30,000 – 35,000 eventually?
If Maryland is ever going to upgrade their program, they need to stop playing these cupcake non-conference programs. No wonder the top athletes by-pass this team and attendance is always poor. I guess Maryland doesn’t have the desire to fill the stands and they don’t care about having the best possible program. This has always been the case over the last 25 years.
A suggestion to Maryland! Get out of the Big Ten and go to division 2 football, you just might win a few games.

There out of conference schedule is not bad at all. Each year they play a Power 5 team (every other year being away), they play a strong Group of 5 team, and a weaker Group of 5 team. All of that is in addition to playing 9 conference games in one of the best divisions in football.
If you’re complaining, you should look at the SEC’s conference schedules, especially the SEC West.
Then maverick look at the SEC West’s conference schedule and STFU
Having to play MSU, OSU, UM, and PSU every year is a pretty good reason to want to get a few cupcakes. I’m surprised they didn’t make this a 2-for-1, myself.
After the beating Marshall put on Maryland in the Military Bowl. They are too p**** to give us a call back for a H and H. We should be playing this year but of course they turned us down
Good choice on moving these games due to the hurricane, would be hard to make up & now I don’t have to stay up til 12am watching Michigan play.
Yeah, now the game will be over at 12:30 instead of 8:30
