RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- No teams in the ACC's Atlantic Division have been bigger disappointments than Maryland and North Carolina State.
The Wolfpack were believed to be preseason contenders to win the division but are the only team winless in ACC play. The Terrapins (2-6, 1-3) have just one win over a Bowl Subdivision team and can't get anything going on the ground.
Two teams with little to play for meet Saturday at Carter-Finley Stadium. Injuries have crippled both teams. N.C. State (3-5, 0-4) have lost 12 players for the season. Maryland's ground game has been a nonfactor since Da'Rel Scott broke his wrist last month.
The loser will be officially eliminated from bowl contention. The winner must run the table just to qualify for a bowl.
