Several other B1G programs have announced similar plans. Some are already allowing student-athletes to return to campus while others have the same timeline as Maryland. All schools have protocols in place for players who may test positive for COVID-19.
Maryland’s football team is entering its second season under head coach Mike Locksley. The Terrapins were 3-9 a year ago.
