No. 8 Maryland (9-3) continues their road trip against Miami (Ohio) (7-5) on Sunday, looking to extend their seven-game winning streak. With one more win, coach Missy Meharg would become the fourth Division 1 coach to reach 500 wins in a career. It's the team's first trip to Oxford under Meharg.

Co-Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week Welma Luus and senior captain Sarah Sprink have led the Terrapins on their winning streak. Luus has scored four goals in the last three games while Sprink's two goals on Friday helped her reach 100 career points.

Miami is just two games over .500 but each of the Redhawks' five losses have come against teams ranked in the top 10 (Albany, Stanford, Virginia, North Carolina and Wake Forest). The Redhawks' star player is goalie Alysa Xavier, who has allowed less than one goal per game, besting Terrapins' freshman goalie Sarah Holliday (1.42 goals against average).

The game will be not be streamed, but live stats are here.
