Maryland vs. West Virginia 2013 final score: Terps blank the 'Eers, 37-0

Lookin' good, Maryland! - Rob Carr

It was a laugher in Baltimore as Maryland improved to 4-0 on the season.

Maryland jumped all over West Virginia early and often en route to a 37-0 win in the pouring rain in Baltimore.

The Terrapin defense victimized West Virginia quarterback Ford Childress, who put up some rather unfathomable statistics: 11-22, 62 yards, two picks and (obviously) no touchdowns. Childress was sacked three times in the loss as well.

It's the best Maryland has looked since Randy Edsall took over the job after the 2010 season, which stands in stark contrast to how far West Virginia has fallen. How bad is today's loss for the Mountaineers? The worst shutout loss in nearly a century:

Box Score Hero: With nobody putting up great offensive stats on either side of the ball, Maryland's defense is an easy call for heroics; West Virginia was held to an anemic 175 yards and just six first downs. That's dominance.

Rankings Ramifications: Nobody's going to mistake this year's West Virginia squad for a potential Top-25 team, but this win pushes Maryland to a 4-0 mark, and the dominant nature of this win just might lead to a few votes in next week's poll. This is a big, sexy win and voters like sexy, especially when it comes to finding new teams to fill out the bottom portion of a bracket.

But Did They Cover? Maryland was favored by four points, so um, yes.
