Maryland's final trip through the ACC in football will end at a place of some of the Terrapins' best recent memories over the last dozen years.
The Terps will close out the 2013 season Nov. 30 at N.C. State, where they clinched an outright ACC title in 2001, completed a riveting comeback in 2003 and secured bowl eligibility in 2007.
Of course, Maryland also fell to 5-6 on the final day of the 2005 season at N.C. State and blew a 41-14 lead at Carter-Finley Stadium in 2011. The Terps don't have all good memories from their recent trips to Raleigh.
Nonetheless, the series is traditionally one of close games, and is a fitting finale against a traditional rival before Maryland bolts for the Big Ten.
A full rundown of the Terps' 2013 schedule:
Aug. 31: Florida International
Sept. 7: Old Dominion
Sept. 14: at Connecticut
Sept. 21: vs. West Virginia in Baltimore
