Mike Locksley and Maryland are going bowling, securing a postseason birth for back-to-back seasons for the first time since 2013-14. At 6-2, the Terrapins secured a bowl game in Week 8 of the season, a particularly impressive accomplishment.

After the game, Locksley revealed to the team it is the fastest the team has qualified for a bowl game in over two decades. Since 2001, to be exact.

He also delivered a fiery message to the team before singing the postgame victory song.

“I respect winning so much man. I’m gonna just tell you, it’s the first time we’ve been bowl eligible this early since 2001,” said Locksley. “Fellas, you’ve earned the right, let’s sing this damn song!”
