We are more than halfway through the College Football regular season and the Conference standings are starting to take shape. Unfortunately for the Maryland Terrapins, the prospects of finishing in a respectable position in the Conference, let alone making a bowl game, are starting to get bleaker by the week.
After their loss to the Florida State Seminoles on Saturday, the Terrapins stand at just 1-3 in the Conference and just 2-5 overall. They are in the penultimate position in the ACC's Atlantic division, ahead of only the Boston College Eagles. They face BC in College Park this weekend with last place in the division on the line, certainly not the stakes Terps fans had hoped for in October games before the season started.
As for the more successful teams in the Conference, Clemson is pacing everyone with their 8-0 start and unblemished 5-0 Conference record. They lead the Atlantic division by one game over the surprising Wake Forest Demon Deacons. The standings in the Coastal Division should come as no surprise, as that side of the ledger always seems to come down to Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech. They both have three wins in conference, but Virginia Tech has only one loss while Georgia Tech has two. The Hokies also have a better overall record.
