The Maryland Terrapins football team, also known as the Maryland Terps, represents the University of Maryland located in College Park, Maryland. The Terrapins are a member of the NCAA FBS Big Ten Conference, which they joined in 2014. Previously, Maryland was a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference. The Terrapins play their home games at Maryland Stadium in College Park and are currently coached by Mike Locksley.
Since 1950, the Terrapins have played their home games at Maryland Stadium in College Park, Maryland with occasional home games from time to time in Baltimore, making them one of two FBS football teams in the Wikipedia:Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area (Navy Midshipmen) and the closest Football Bowl Subdivision team to Washington, D.C. The team's official colors of red, white, black, and gold have been in use in some combination since the 1920s and are taken from Maryland's state flag, and the Terrapins nickname — often abbreviated as "Terps" — was adopted in 1933 after a turtle species native to the state. Maryland shares storied rivalries with Virginia and West Virginia.
The program's achievements have included one national championship, nine ACC championships, two Southern Conference championships, eleven consensus All-Americans, several Hall of Fame inductees, and twenty-four bowl game appearances. Maryland possesses the third-most ACC championships with nine, which places them behind Clemson and Florida State with 15 each. Many former Terrapins players and coaches have gone on to careers in professional football including 16 first-round NFL Draft picks.
