Leading the Atlantic Division, the Maryland Terrapins head to Charlottesville for a clash against rival UVA.
The Maryland Terrpains will go for their second straight ACC win on Saturday when they travel south to Charlottesville for a matchup against neighboring Virginia. The Terps started their conference slate later in the season, but their 1-0 record is good enough for first in the Atlantic Division as the five other teams already have a loss to their name. The Terps (3-2 overall) did it with defense last week against Wake Forest, with Randy Edsall's club near the bottom of the FBS in both rushing and passing offense.
Virginia enters the game desperate for a win after dropping their fourth straight last week in a loss to Duke. The Cavaliers have been blown out in two ACC contests this season, and their porous defense may be just what a struggling Terps offense needs to get on track. Despite the four-game losing streak and defensive struggles, the Cavaliers are still favored at home by two points.
