Maryland rolls by West Virginia, 37-0

It had to have been the uniforms. In what was a little less dramatic than anticipated, Maryland ended up shutting out West Virginia, 37-0.

It all felt fresh for Maryland on Saturday — its splashy, bright red uniforms, its first four-game winning streak in seven years and the beginning of a new chapter against a West Virginia team that had beaten the Terps seven straight times.

Even with a persistent rain, it turned out to be the perfect afternoon for Maryland to debut its new “Pride 2.0″ uniforms on the field. In their first game with hand-painted helmets and “no-grab” Under Armour fabric, the Terps had six takeaways in a 37-0 victory over the Mountaineers (2-2) at M&T Bank Stadium.

See? Uniforms.

It was Maryland’s first shutout since 2008, and the first against the Mountaineers since 1999.

The Terps already have matched last season’s win total, and are 4-0 for the first time since 2001. Their last four-game winning streak was in 2006. They are two wins shy of bowl eligibility.

For the first time this season, Maryland failed to surpass 500 yards in total offense — but it didn’t need to.

Yeah, okay. Baltimore Sun with the story.
