2013: 7-6 (3-5 ACC)
The 2013 season in the ACC was Maryland’s last. The Terrapins left the ACC on neither a high nor low note. Unable to raise their play for the big time opponents the Terrapins first loss of the year came to eventual national champion, Florida State, 63-0. They also suffered a loss to #8 Clemson later in the year. The season ended on a sour note when Maryland lost to Marshall,l in the Military bowl, 31-20. Perhaps, their best win of the year was when they defeated Virginia Tech 27-24. It was the third year for Coach Randy Edsal, who has increased his win total each season with the school. The Terrapins will be entering the Big Ten come the 2014 season. In order to achieve instant success in the new league Maryland will look to quarterback C.J Brown. Brown was a dual threat for last year’s Maryland team. He threw for over 2000 yards while picking up 570 on the ground. Junior running back Brandon Ross will also look to help Brown carry the offensive load in the 2014 season.
Maryland will be entering the Big Ten’s new East division with the likes of Michigan and Michigan State. This move to the Big Ten will foster new rivalries as Maryland will look to start off their first season on the right foot. Notable Maryland football alumni include Torrey Smith, Darius Heyward-Bey, and Vernon Davis. Maryland football play their games in College Park, Maryland at Capital One Field. Also known as Byrd Stadium, it holds up to 51,000 people. Overall Maryland has eleven conference championships. They will look to add a twelfth this year in the Big Ten.
