After squeaking out two wins against William & Mary and Temple, the Maryland Terrapins will come to Morgantown on Saturday, Sept. 22 to battle the West Virginia Mountaineers.

WVU first played Maryland in 1919.  Since then, this rivalry has been on and off, but it has been constant from 2004-2007 and, more recently, 2010-current. 

Currently, the Mountaineers lead the series 25-21-2.  In 2010, when the rivalry resumed, West Virginia pulled out the victory at home 31-17.  Last year, quarterback Geno Smith had quite the showing in College Park to lead the Mountaineers to a 37-31 victory.

Smith had a 73.5 percentage completion rate and threw for 388 yards in the game.

Maryland will be led by freshman quarterback Perry Hills.  The Terps struggled against William & Mary offensively, but were able to score 36 points against Temple the following week.

The Mountaineers will have opportunities to score with their potent offense, but no team should be overlooked, especially against a non-conference opponent with nothing to lose.

Here are some keys to the game against the Terps next Saturday.
