BALTIMORE -- Maryland's motivation against West Virginia on Saturday extends beyond the desire to end a run of seven straight losses to the Mountaineers.
The Terrapins' focus rests squarely on completing their nonconference schedule with a perfect record.
"We're not trying to blow this game out of proportion, " Maryland tight end Dave Stinebaugh says Maryland isn't trying to blow the game out of proportion. He says, "It's about going to 4-0. The past is the past. ... We're just looking forward to taking the next step."
Off to their best start since 2001, the Terrapins have defeated Florida International, Old Dominion and Connecticut. West Virginia (2-1) will be Maryland's most formidable opponent thus far, having sandwiched wins over William & Mary and Georgia State around a road loss to Oklahoma.
