WASHINGTON, D.C. – After arriving downtown yesterday to kick off bowl week, the Maryland football team crossed the city for a tour of the United States Capitol Tuesday morning before hitting the practice field in preparation for Friday’s Military Bowl matchup with Marshall.
Upon arriving at the steps of Congress, the Terps posed for a team photo and then headed to the visitor’s center.
Once inside, the team took in a short film on the history of the building and the legislative arm of the U.S. government and prepared for a guided tour.
The tour included stops in the famous Capitol Rotunda, the collection in statuary hall, the crypt and the former chamber of the United States Supreme Court.
After leaving the Capitol, the squad boarded its buses and headed to practice to continue preparing for the Herd. This evening, Maryland and Marshall will enjoy a performance from world-famous hypnotist Tom DeLuca.
Kickoff for Maryland and Marshall is set for 2:30 p.m. on Friday from Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, Md. For tickets, visit umterps.com.
