Virginia Vs. Maryland: Terps Look To Stop Bleeding Against Rival Cavaliers

The Terps (2-6, 1-4) host Virginia (5-3, 2-2) on Saturday hoping to end a four-game losing streak.

Since defeating the non-major Towson Tigers on Oct. 1, the Maryland Terrapins (2-6, 1-4) have lost each of their last four games to drop last place in the Atlantic Coast Conference. They'll look to climb out of the cellar this Saturday, Nov. 5. against the Virginia Cavaliers (5-3, 2-2) at Byrd Stadium. Kickoff is set for 12:30 Eastern.

Most recently, the Terrapins fell to the Boston College Eagles, 28-17. The Eagles ran roughshod over Maryland, gaining 372 yards rushing on 62 carries. Maryland quarterback Danny O'Brien completed just 40 percent of his passes, though he did throw for one touchdown and run for another in defeat.

The Cavaliers jumped out to a 20-7 lead against the Miami Hurricanes, and managed to hold on for a 28-21 victory. Junior running back Perry Jones ran for 67 yards, caught a 78-yard touchdown pass, and threw for another touchdown in the victory.

Maryland prevailed over Virginia last season, 42-23, despite trailing by two points heading into the final period. D.J. Adams punched it in at the goal line early in the fourth, and O'Brien finished Virginia off with two touchdown passes later in the quarter as the Terps' defense blanked the Cavaliers.

The Terrapins' all-time record against Virginia stands at 42-31-2.
