[MEN'S COLLEGE CUP: Maryland-Virginia] One of college soccer's great rivalries will end on Friday. ACC powers Maryland and Virginia will met for the third time this season in the semifinals of the Men’s College Cup at PPL Park in Chester, Pa. (TV ESPNU, live, 7:30 p.m. ET). It will be the 78th meeting in a rivalry that dates back to 1941, but after this season, Maryland will move to the Big Ten.

The Terrapins are back at the College Cup for the second year in a row -- they lost to a shootout to Georgetown after a wild 4-4 tie -- while the Cavaliers return for the first time since winning their sixth title in 2009.

The Maryland-Virginia meeting in the regular season ended in a 3-3 tie, while the ACC championship game went to Maryland, 1-0, on an own goal.

MARYLAND. Maryland has not lost since suffering a 4-3 home defeat to Wake Forest on Oct. 19. The Terrapins, who take a 10-game winning streak in the semifinals, are led by 2012 MAC Hermann Trophy winner Patrick Mullins (16 goals, 8 assists) and sophomore Schillo Tshuma (6 goals).

The Terrapins are a very young team, starting four freshmen, including U.S. U-20 keeper Zack Steffan, and three sophomores. That youth cost them early in the season, but they are finding their form just in time.

VIRGINIA. Virginia is playing in its 33nd consecutive NCAA tournament, the longest active streak in Division I soccer. Twelve of the Cavaliers' 19 foes reached the NCAA tournament, and they played two final four teams -- Notre Dame and Maryland -- twice.

The Cavaliers are also young, starting only one senior. Five players have five or more goals, but none has more than seven. Philadelphia product Darius Madison, who saw some time with the U.S. U-20s, is one of UVa's most dangerous threats.
