Don’t know why I was shocked Maryland’s worst loss to Clemson before last night was 22 points.

Sure, it’s a lopsided series in favor of the Terps. But somewhere along the way when you play a team 133 (now 134) times, there’s a bludgeoning worse than 22 points.

Now there is.

That’s the second time in a month Maryland’s endured a “worst margin of defeat ever” loss. So in part to inform and in part to have this chart done in case it happens again sometime soon, here are the Terrapins‘ worst margins of defeat against the other 11 ACC schools:
