COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Maryland's football team is headed for a second straight losing season and now has gone 11 straight years without winning an Atlantic Coast Conference title.

So how in the world are the Terrapins going to survive in the Big Ten?

Maryland announced Monday that it will leave ACC and begin play in the Big Ten in 2014. That means the struggling football program will be forced to swap out games against Wake Forest, Duke and Boston College for potential matchups with Ohio State, Michigan and Wisconsin.

Terps coach Randy Edsall, who's 6-17 in his two seasons at the school, says the program will flourish in its new conference.

He says, "There's no doubt we will be able to compete and do well in the Big Ten."
