After blowing out James Madison to begin the season, Maryland hit the road to play South Florida, and they won a close game there 24-17. The next week they came back home to play West Virginia and lost a wild one, 40-37. To finish out their non-conference schedule they traveled to Syracuse and won 34-20. The following week they opened up their 2014 Big Ten schedule with an impressive 37-15 win over Indiana. After the Indiana game, they came back home for Ohio State and Iowa. They lost to Ohio State 52-24 and they beat Iowa 38-31. We are about to find out just how good this Maryland team is in the coming weeks though. They travel to Wisconsin this Saturday. Next week they travel to Penn State. After that they get a week off before coming home for Michigan State. After that they travel to Michigan, and then they finish of their Big Ten schedule with a game at home against Rutgers. Some tough games are in there.
Let’s make one thing clear, this is a school that is known more for its basketball than its football. Maryland football tickets are sometimes available right out of the box office. Maryland has just seven players in the college football Hall of Fame, and the last one was Randy White, who played for Maryland for 1972-1974. Other than that, there is not much to say about this team’s tradition.
