The former Atlantic Coast Conference opponents will meet in the first game of the series on Sept. 19, 2026 in College Park. The Terps will return to Blacksburg, Va., to play the Hokies on Sept. 18, 2027, and the final two games of the series will take place on Sept. 16, 2028 and Sept. 15, 2029 in College Park and Blacksburg.
Should Maryland get to No. 1 in the latest Top 25 rankings by either the Associated Press or USA Today Sports released Monday afternoon, it will mark the first time in program history that the Terps occupy the top spot during the season.
Clayton A. ¿Bud¿ Beardmore, the architect of the Terps¿ first two ¿ and only two ¿ NCAA lacrosse championships in 1973 and 1975, died Wednesday morning of complications related to Parkinson¿s at his home in Severna Park. He was 76.
With the start of the 2016 college lacrosse season just a few weeks away, here is the second installment of a series that offers a preview of the battles for conference championships in Division I.

Nearly 20 months after playing his last game for the Yellow Jackets as a sophomore in the 2014 Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, Robert Carter Jr. will play his first game as a Terp Friday night when No. 3 Maryland hosts Division II Southern New Hampshire in a preseason contest at Xfinity Center.
At 17-1, the Terps clearly emerged ahead of second seed North Carolina (15-3), third seed Duke (14-4) and fourth seed Syracuse (14-7) after the Tar Heels lost to Syracuse in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, the Blue Devils lost to Johns Hopkins Sunday and Syracuse lost to Loyola Maryland Saturday.
Virginia's surge to No. 5 after upsetting Atlantic Coast Conference rivals Duke and Boston College over the past two weeks came with some exceptional play from a core of players from Baltimore — led by freshman goalie Rachel Vander Kolk.
After making the move from the Atlantic Coast Conference to the Big Ten Conference, Maryland was able to maintain just one rivalry with its former league, and the No. 5 Terps (5-1) will face No. 2 North Carolina (8-0) in the Pacific Coast Shootout in Santa Ana, Calif., on Saturday.

McCoy and the Terps were disappointed with Thursday's outcome, a 38-3 loss to No. 4 Penn State in Maryland's inaugural home match as a member of the Big Ten Conference. But this was another important step in their process.
This has not been a stellar start to the season for the Big Ten. Aside from winning its annual interleague competition with the Atlantic Coast Conference despite its ranked teams going 1-5, Maryland's new basketball breathren have not exactly lived up to their reputation among the nation's best.
Jake Layman was an important, if inconsistent, role player for most of his first two seasons at Maryland. Now, with seniors Dez Wells and Evan Smotrycz sidelined because of injuries, the 6-foot-9 junior forward is being asked to play a bigger role for the Terps.
