The SBI No. 6-ranked Maryland Terrapins continues their ACC farewell tour against another top rival this Saturday, when they host No. 13 Wake Forest.
The Terrapins and Demon Deacons are tied atop the ACC standings with No. 3 Notre Dame, who faces NC State. Clemson needs a win on Friday at home against Pittsburgh to keep within striking distance of the top three teams.
Three other conferences see ranked teams face off this weekend. No. 9 Furman, the only ranked team in the Southern Conference, plays honorable mention Elon on Saturday and No. 8 Georgetown, fourth in the Big East standings behind leaders Marquette, host honorable mention Butler.
The final match-up this weekend to keep an eye on sees Penn St. travel to No. 12 Michigan St. on Sunday. The Nittany Lions have a golden chance to put even more distance between themselves and the rest of the Big Ten.
