Boston College has won the past three meetings with Maryland. The Terrapins haven’t defeated the Eagles since a 24-21 win on Oct. 23, 2010.

“Our program is built on playing defense, running the football, scoring in the red zone, you know, don’t turn the ball over, time of possession,” Boston College head coach Steve Addazzio, whose in his fourth season. “I mean, these guys, they’re a high-flying, fast-tempo, you know, I’m just hoping they don’t score 9,000 points. That wouldn’t do good for old BC Eagles.”

In the past 10 meetings between these two teams, the Eagles have won eight times. Besides the 2010 win, Maryland also won 42-35 on Nov. 10, 2007.

“The biggest thing when you’re coming in, trying to establish, the word ‘culture’ is used a lot,” Terrapins first-year head coach D.J. Durkin said. “There’s a lot that goes into that, but it was very important, I think just trying to establish it with our guys on how we do things, the type of mindset, how we practice, how we train, how we play. I’m very pleased with the amount of buy-in we had from our seniors and our team and this is a great reward for them.”

Boston College is on a two-game win streak. They haven’t lost a game since Nov. 11 when they were defeated 45-7 by the Florida State Seminoles.

Terrapins head coach D.J. Durkin and Boston College head coach Steve Addazzio are familiar with one another. The previously coached under Urban Meyer with the Florida Gators in 2010.

“Our families are friends,” Addazzio said. “Listen, D.J. Was one of my favorite guys to ever work with. He’s intense. He’s a heck of a football coach. I think the world of him.”
