Maryland is 2-0 so far this season, etching out wins against Buffalo and Charlotte.

Although it was an impressive start for the Terrapins, there weren’t exactly a lot of people there to see it. Photos circulated on social media after the Week 1 matchup showing an almost desolate stadium.

In an interview this week, Maryland head coach Michael Locksley acknowledged low fan turnout, and challenged Terrapins fans to do better.

“I get told that the thing I need to do is close the gap between the top teams in our league. Well, the challenge is will our fans help me close the gap with creating an environment that makes it tough when people come in the Shell?

It’s not just about attendance, rather, it’s about community and the spirit of football. Locksley says  “It also gives us a chance to showcase that we have a community of people that really love what Maryland football is all about.”

Fans can find out the details of the challenge in the full interview.

Will Maryland fans rise up to the challenge? We’ll find out when the Terrapins take on SMU on Saturday.
