College football: Week 12 preview
Question of the Day
VIRGINIA (4-7, 2-5 ACC) at VIRGINIA TECH (5-6, 3-4)
Where: Lane Stadium, Blacksburg, Va.
TV/radio: ESPNU, 570 AM, 106.7 FM
Outlook: Virginia Tech leads series 51-37-5 and has won 12 of the last 13 meetings. The Hokies find themselves in the unusual position of needing a Commonwealth Cup triumph simply to extend their season. Considering the shortage of bowl-eligible ACC teams, Virginia Tech could find itself headed to bowl games in Orlando, El Paso, Charlotte or Nashville with a victory. Virginia is assured its fourth losing season in five years, but could salvage something from the season by upsetting their in-state rival. The Hokies have won the last three meetings by an average of 32.3 points.
MARYLAND (4-7, 2-5 ACC) at NORTH CAROLINA (7-4, 4-3)
Where: Kenan Stadium, Chapel Hill, N.C.
TV/radio: CSN, 980 AM
Outlook: North Carolina leads series 36-32-1, though Maryland won the last meeting 17-15 in College Park in 2008. It is the season finale for both teams, the Terrapins because of their record and the Tar Heels because of penalties stemming from NCAA violations. While wideout Stefon Diggs won't break Maryland's single-season all-purpose yardage mark of 2,192 set by Torrey Smith in 2009, he needs 193 yards to move past LaMont Jordan (1,840 yards in 1999) for second in school history. North Carolina tailback Giovanni Bernard is tied for an ACC-best 18 touchdowns (11 rushing, five receiving, two punt returns) in just nine games.
