PRESS RELEASE

COLLEGE PARK, Md. — In celebration of the 150th anniversary of college football, the Maryland football team will pay homage to the 1980’s teams and wear throwback uniforms when the Terps host Michigan for homecoming on November 2.

The uniforms will feature the iconic Script Terps logo on the helmets and pants. The jersey will have traditional old mesh detail on advanced Armour Grid technology with the classic black, white and gold striping on the sleeves.

“I was raised on the Terps script,” said Maryland Head Coach Michael Locksley. “I fell in love with the teams that donned those uniforms. I remember watching guys like Boomer and Frank Reich guiding the Terps in those uniforms. I know our team will be excited to bring that back for homecoming.”

Boomer Esiason led the Terps to a 34-13 win over Syracuse in 1983.

Throwback gear will be available for purchase for this season only starting at 1 p.m. on August 13. Visit the online team store by clicking here or visit the team stores on campus.
