This season, following each week of college football, we'll take a look at how Maryland's opponents fared the previous week, where they stand record wise, and note any other pertinent information that happened to the remaining opponents during their games that week.
West Virginia: (2-1) (0-1)
WVU lost to Oklahoma, 16-7, in week 2, but rebounded this past week with an easy victory over Georgia State. They did what they were supposed to do against an inferior opponent, but the most interesting development was the decision to give redshirt freshman QB Ford Childress the starting. After sputtering in the 1st half, Childress ended up having a record breaking day for a freshman (breaking records of Scott McBrien, when he was still at WVU). Maryland faces WVU in Baltimore this week. We'll have more on them soon.
Florida State: (2-0) (1-0)
The Noles remain unbeaten after blowing out Nevada 62-7. They moved up to #8 this week, keeping the Noles on a war patch with Clemson for the Atlantic title. FSU takes on Bethune-Cookman, who actually beat FIU last week (wow is FIU bad) at home this Saturday. They will face the Terps at home on October 5th.
Virginia: (1-1) (0-0)
UVA had a bye week this week, after getting HAMMERED at home by Oregon in week 2, 59-10. UVA now faces VMI at home on September 21st. Maryland faces our rival to the south at home on October 12th.
Wake Forest: (1-2) (0-1)
Poor Wake. They had hoped to rebound from their loss last week to BC in #therivalry, but dropped a close one to Louisiana-Monroe in front of literally hundreds of people:

This week, they travel to Army. They face Maryland in Winston-Salem on October 19th. Good tickets are still available.
Clemson: (2-0) (0-0)
Clemson had a glorified exhibition against South Carolina State on September 7, but didn't play this past weekend, as they have a date with NC State on Thursday night in Raleigh. , trouncing the Bulldogs 52-13. The Tigers at #3 in the AP and moved up to #4 in the coaches' poll. They'll face Maryland in College Park on October 26th.
Syracuse: (1-2) (0-0)
The Orange rebounded from back to back losses to start the season by thrashing Wagner at home, 54-0. Scott Shafer got his first win as Syracuse head coach, but how many more will his team get this year? They take on Tulane this week before starting ACC play on October 5th, when they're initiated into the conference by having to face Clemson. They'll take on Maryland at home on November 9th, a week after Maryland's bye.
Virginia Tech: (2-1) (0-0)
Virginia Tech gave Western Carolina a 45-3 beat down two weeks ago but couldn't replicate that offensive success against East Carolina, who they narrowly defeated Saturday, 15-10. The defense did their job, holding the Pirates to just 30 yards of offense in the 2nd half, but Tech's offense also struggled. Beamer Ball, y'all. #GoACC. The Hokies take on Maryland November 16th in Blacksburg.
Boston College: (2-1) (1-0)
After defeating Wake in their conference opener, BC traveled to LA to take on USC, who gave the Eagles a nice reality check that they're not really that good in a 35-7 beat down. #GoACC. BC faces Maryland on November 23rd in College Park.
NC State: (2-0) (0-0)
After State narrowly defeating Richmond last week, they had this weekend off to prepare to take on Clemson at home this Thursday. State will face Maryland at home for the Yow Bowl on November 30th to close out the regular season.
