Maryland football unveils the Mark L. Butler Tunnel which is...a giant turtle shell

COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- A new tradition was born on Saturday for the Maryland Terrapins. As the Terps took the field for the start of the 2019 season, they rubbed the bronze Testudo statue as always, but they did so within a new turtle shell tunnel.

Maryland unveiled the Mark L. Butler Tunnel on Saturday in which the players now run through onto Capital One Field at Maryland Stadium. The tunnel is in the shape of a turtle shell and looks...pretty darn good.

The tunnel was named for a member of the Board of Trustees.

Now before home games, you can fear the turtle while the football team rubs a turtle inside a turtle shell.

That’s a lot of turtles.
