DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- When Maryland visits Duke on Saturday, it'll only feel like a nonconference game.
These longtime Atlantic Coast Conference basketball rivals are meeting in football for the first time since 2004. That's a result of the conference's expansion to 12 teams and its divisional split.
No player on either team has played against the other. Duke coach David Cutcliffe is warning his team not to be deceived by the Terrapins' losing record. He says Maryland just hasn't taken care of the ball in critical situations.
The Blue Devils (3-3, 1-2) have won two of three, while Maryland (2-5, 1-2) has lost four of five with the only victory a three-point home win against Clemson. The Terps haven't won away from College Park this season.
