GREENSBORO, N.C. - How does a football team in athletic-conference limbo handle its final season as a member of a league that has already begun moving on without it? "Like any other year. " That's what Maryland coach Randy Edsall said, at least. As he enters his third year in College Park and his last as an Atlantic Coast Conference coach, Edsall wants it known that his staff still very much feels like it is part of the conference their school helped establish 60 years ago. "My job is to coach my football team," Edsall said Monday at the ACC Kickoff.

On a November night in 2007, Maryland recruit Joe Vellano sat in the Byrd Stadium stands as a high school senior and watched the Terps upset Matt Ryan-led Boston College to gain its second win of the season over a Top 10 team. Vellano enrolled at Maryland the next year. The defensive lineman - who is listed as questionable heading into his final home game Saturday against No. 10 Florida State - went on to become an All-Atlantic Coast Conference performer and a second-team Walter Camp All-American in 2011.

HOT SPRINGS, Va. - A year ago, a rebuilding Virginia Tech football team was picked by many to finish toward the bottom of the Atlantic Coast Conference and Maryland, riding the crest of three straight seasons with at least 10 wins, was still being given a fair amount of respect. What happened? The Hokies, playing their first season in the ACC after coming over from the Big East, finished 10-3 and leapfrogged over perennial powers Florida State and Miami to win the league. Meanwhile, the Terrapins were among the biggest disappointments, falling to 5-6. This year's preseason poll of media gathered at The Homestead resort reflected the current status of both programs: Virginia Tech was announced yesterday as overwhelming favorite to win the Coastal Division, and Maryland finished fifth in the voting among six teams in the Atlantic Division.

Maryland's two-games-a-season men's basketball series with Duke - once a rite of winter - will no longer occur every year. The Atlantic Coast Conference on Friday released its future scheduling formats and divisions to account for the arrival - at an undetermined time - of Pittsburgh and Syracuse. In basketball, the Terps will host and play at Pittsburgh annually while facing the remaining 12 conference teams at least once. Maryland will play each of the other schools (besides Pitt)

So much had happened in the second half at Sun Life Stadium. Maryland was winning, then losing, then winning, then losing. But when coach Ralph Friedgen and his Terps awoke Sunday morning, the bottom line was that although they had lost, 26-20, to Miami, their position in their Atlantic Coast Conference division was remarkably unchanged. "We're kind of right back where we started," Friedgen said Sunday in his media conference call. Maryland (6-3, 3-2 ACC) entered Saturday's matchup with the Hurricanes one-half game behind Florida State in the Atlantic Division, and tied with North Carolina State for second place.

C.J. Spiller scored a touchdown Saturday in his final game at Death Valley and No. 18 Clemson beat Virginia, 34-21, on the day the Tigers clinched their first trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference title game. The Tigers (8-3, 6-2 ACC) won their sixth straight game but had the Atlantic Division wrapped up as they kicked off, thanks to North Carolina's 31-13 victory against Boston College. Clemson will face Coastal Division winner Georgia Tech in two weeks in Tampa, Fla. Spiller had a 4-yard touchdown run and set the ACC's single-season all-purpose yardage mark, surpassing the 2,059 of Virginia's Thomas Jones in 1999.

COLLEGE PARK - In early October, Maryland ended its season-long habit of breaking practice huddles with the cry of "ACC champions!" The players decided they didn't want to get ahead of themselves. Now, with two games to go and a berth in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game within reach, the 22nd-ranked Terps might be ready to revisit their decision. "Believing they can accomplish this is starting to become a reality now," coach Ralph Friedgen said yesterday after reviewing Saturday's 17-15 win over North Carolina.

Montel Harris ran for 121 yards and a touchdown and Marcellus Bowman went 87 yards with an interception for another score to help Boston College beat No. 20 Florida State, 27-17, in Tallahassee last night, a day after five Seminoles players were suspended for fighting. The Eagles picked off Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder three times and held the Seminoles to just 73 rushing yards. It was the fourth straight year the visiting team has won in this budding rivalry. Florida State beat a previously unbeaten and second-ranked Boston College team last year in Boston by an identical 27-17 score.
