Previewing 2012 WVU Football Opponents: Maryland

Posted:
MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia and Maryland have met on the gridiron 48 times. They have played nearly every year since 1943. The series took a brief break following the 2007 season and resumed in 2010.

West Virginia has won the last six straight against Maryland.

Maryland Head Coach Randy Edsall enters his second season with the Terps. It has been a tumultuous offseason with Edsall losing two key players who decided to transfer.

Quarterback Danny O'brien and Offensive Lineman Max Garcia are no longer with the program.

Edsall does not have a very long leash. Maryland lost its last eight games in 2011. The University does not want to see the same kind of results in 2012.
