Maryland has recorded victories in 3 of its last 4 games played on Friday. The Terps defeated NC State in the 2022 Dukes’ Mayo Bowl, topped Illinois but fell to Iowa in 2021, and defeated Minnesota at home in 2020. Maryland won its lone night game in 2022, defeating SMU, 34-27.

Maryland returns a slew of talent, including Maryland career passing record holder Taulia Tagovailoa, who returns for his fourth season in College Park in 2023. The Terps also boast All-Big Ten selections in running back Roman Hemby, offensive lineman Delmar Glaze and tight end Corey Dyches, and All-Big Ten safety Beau Brade and linebacker Jaishawn Barham. Last season, the defense allowed the fewest number of points and touchdowns in a season for a Terps team since 2010.
