Maryland's final ACC home schedule includes neither Duke nor North Carolina (Getty Images)Considering the widespread acrimony caused by its decision to bolt for the Big Ten in 2014, Maryland had to suspect it would receive no favors from the ACC office before its departure.
Therefore, it should come as no surprise to the Terps that the newly released 2013-14 ACC schedule isn't exactly ideal.
Neither North Carolina nor Duke will visit College Park for one final sendoff next season because the ACC's flagship programs will be road-only opponents for Maryland.
