Maryland will begin its postponed, truncated Big Ten football season on Oct. 24 at Northwestern. 

The conference unveiled the nine-game, conference-only schedule through a Fox Sports broadcast on Saturday. Here is the full slate ahead for the Terps. 

  • Week 1: @ Northwestern: 10/24
  • Week 2: vs. Minnesota: 10/31
  • Week 3: @ Penn State: 11/7
  • Week 4: vs. Ohio State: 11/14
  • Week 5: vs. Michigan State: 11/21
  • Week 6: @ Indiana: 11/28
  • Week 7: @ Michigan: 12/5
  • Week 8: vs. Rutgers 12/12
  • Week 9: TBD 12/19

The Big Ten schedule leaves little wiggle room for cancelations or postponements due to the coronavirus, as the NCAA college football playoff seedings will be decided just a day following the conference's championship on Dec. 19.

The Terps' final contest will come on Dec. 19 against a cross-divisional opponent from the West, as the top-two teams in the Big Ten will square off for a chance at the championship. There will be no fans in attendance at any of the games for at least the start of the season.
