Local rivals Johns Hopkins (12-3) and Maryland (10-5) face off today in Annapolis, Maryland in a NCAA Men's Lacrosee Quarterfinal battle.
This is the 109th time these two schools have met, with John Hopkins winning the first matchup 10-0 in 1895. The Blue Jays lead the all-time series, 68-39-1, but Maryland won the most recent game in upset fashion, besting Hopkins 9-6 at Homewood Field in April.
Maryland was the runner up in last year's tournament, falling to Virginia in the championship game. Perennial power Johns Hopkins has not made a national semifinal since 2008.
