Terps, Orange may meet in OOC football

That's what's being reported in the Syracuse Post-Standard. Maryland and SU are what you might call semi-traditional rivals, having met in football 34 times over the years, mostly from the mid-'50s to the early '80s; they last met in 1994. Details are at http://www.syracuse.com/orangefootball/index.ssf/2013/07/syracuse_and_maryland_to_play.html

It's a wise move for both schools. Maryland needs an OOC perennial in football, and the Orange could fit into the role currently held by West Virginia. Meanwhile, SU has plenty of alumni in the Washington-Baltimore area (it probably preferred entering the Atlantic Division for precisely that reason), and playing in the region is good for its recruiting.

Wouldn't mind seeing the Terps and Orange regularly schedule each other in men's and women's basketball and men's and women's lacrosse, too -- especially since traditional ACC rivals such as Virginia, N.C. State and North Carolina currently seem cool to the concept.
