Coach Mike Locksley now knows the game times for Maryland Terrapins' first three games of the year, along with their game against the Northwestern Wildcats on Oct. 11.

On Thursday the Big Ten Conference announced the Terps will kickoff their 2024 season at noon (EST) against the UConn Huskies in College Park. Md., on Aug. 31 and will be televised on FS1.

Maryland last played UConn in 2013 and came away with a 32-21 win in East Hartford, Conn. This is the first game of a home-and-home series with the next meeting being scheduled for Sept. 12, 2026. Maryland has played UConn three previous times with the Terps winning two of those three games.

 Maryland will remain at home in Week 2 and will  kickoff conference play when they welcome in Michigan State. The Terps will play the Spartans at 3:30 p.m. EST on Sept. 14 on the Big Ten Network. Maryland has beaten the Spartans the last two times they have met but MSU holds all-time series lead, 10-4.


The Terps will be heading on the road for the first time in 2024 when they head to Charlottesville, Va., for a matchup with the Virginia Cavaliers of the Atlantic Coast Conference. The two teams are scheduled to play at 8 p.m. EST on Sept. 14 on the ACC Network. This is the second leg of a home-and-home with the Terps winning last year's game 42-14. 

Maryland's home game against Northwestern is scheduled for 8 p.m. and will be televised on FOX.

 Maryland is coming off an up-and-down year in 2023 where they won their first five games, but then ended the season 2-5 to finish wth an 8-5 overall record. Maryland played in Music City Bowl and picked up a 31-13 victory Auburn to finished the season 9-5.


If Maryland hopes to be playing in Indianapolis on Dec.7 in the Big Ten Championship game, they will need a fast start to the season. The good news for Terps fans is that they won't be playing Michigan and Ohio State this season. The bad news is they still play on the road at Penn State on Nov. 30, and thanks to conference realignment they will play USC at home on Oct. 19 and on the road at Oregon on Nov. 9.

Locksley has his work cut out for him in 2024 and will be starting a new quarterback after Taulia Tagovailoa ran out of playing eligibility. However, the Terps do bring back three key players on offense in running back Roman Hemby, wide receivers Tai Felton and Kaden Prather.

The Defense has seven starters returning including third-team All-Big Ten selection Ruben Hyppolite.  Maryland has the 10th best odds to win the Big Ten at +8000, and Ohio State has the best odds at +160.
