The ACC announced the conference schedule of each of their member institutions today. We have known who the Terps will be facing in the non-conference portion of their 2013 schedule for quite some time now. But, until today, we did not know what their ACC schedule would look like as the Terps prepare for what will be their victory lap around the conference.
We now know that Maryland will host Boston College, Clemson, Syracuse and Virginia. The Terps will travel to Florida State University, NC State, Wake Forest and Virginia Tech for what will be their final run through the Atlantic Coast Conference as a football program.
Next season will mark the first time the Terrapins have taken on the Orange of Syracuse University of the gridiron since 1994. Syracuse leads the all-time series between the Orange and the Terrapins with a record of 18-14-2. Maryland hasn’t defeated Syracuse in football since a 35-18 victory in the 1985 Cherry Bowl.
The Terps also take on Virginia Tech for the first time since a 36-9 defeat in College Park in 2009. This marks the Terps first trip back to Blacksburg since a 23-13 loss to the Hokies in 2008.
The Terrapins full schedule will include games against Old Dominion and Florida International at home, a trip to Storrs, CT to face the Huskies of UCONN in the second Edsall Bowl and finally a neutral field match up against West Virginia at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, MD.
