Maryland's reasons to be rivals with every school in the Big Ten
It's become a common question: Now that Maryland is part of the Big Ten, who will be the Terps' rivals?
Well, we put the microscope to each of the other 13 full-time institutions in the conference and found reasons that Maryland fans can carry a little animosity into their first matchups. We'll admit that some of them are a stretch, but it won't take long for some better reasons for rivalry to arise.

We don't really need to run down the whole history again, do we?
For geographic reasons, Penn State is probably the most natural rival for Maryland. But even placing that aside, watching the Terps' former coach in waiting have any level of success will rankle Maryland supporters.
A football win over Penn State might replace beating Duke in men's basketball as the greatest reason for fans to revel along Route 1 (safely, of course).
