    Maryland-West Virginia football rivalry [Pictures]

    After Maryland beat West Virginia last season, Terps coach Randy Edsall stood in front of a group of media and said: "It's always good to beat West Virginia, especially after seven [straight games] of not beating them." To Edsall, West Virginia is Maryland's greatest rival. "I think that's probably the biggest rivalry I've seen since I've been here, with no disrespect to the teams in the ACC," Edsall said. "I see this one as being more intense than some of the teams we played previously in the ACC." The Mountaineers have dominated the rivalry for the most part since 2004. But the Terps did beat West Virginia, 37-0, last season and are now closer to .500 all time (22-26-2) against the Mountaineers heading into Saturday's game in College Park. Via Matt Zenitz, here is a look back at their five most recent meetings:
