Maryland-West Virginia GameThread

For the 51st time, Maryland and West Virginia meet on the gridiron.

Rob Carr

Maryland and West Virginia renew their rivalry this afternoon at Byrd Stadium. The game kicks off at 12 p.m. It will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network and at BTN2Go. While you're watching the game, join us to talk about it. We'll have live updates throughout the afternoon from the Tyser Tower press box.

If you enjoy coming up with synonyms for "crushed," last year's Terps game against West Virginia was a fun time for you. Maryland "obliterated," "annihilated," "stomped" and otherwise badly outplayed the Ford Childress-led Mountaineers at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium. But it's a new year, and the Mountaineers have a new quarterback, a deeper roster and a better defense. This will surely be Maryland's most challenging game yet.

The Diamondback did a good look-back at the recent history of the rivalry and how much West Virginia has changed.

It's a matchup of realigned schools, Roman Stubbs writes in the Washington Post.
