Hokies to play Terrapins in Baltimore in 2014
Game to be contested at M&T Bank Stadium

COLLEGE PARK, Md. – Following the success of two games against Navy at M&T Bank Stadium, the University of Maryland has agreed to play two more football contests at the NFL venue in Baltimore.

The Terrapins will face interstate rival West Virginia on Saturday, Sept. 21, 2013 and Atlantic Coast Conference foe Virginia Tech in 2014 at the 71,008-seat stadium. The date for the Virginia Tech game will be determined when the ACC releases its schedule in early 2014.

The Baltimore Ravens, who played host to the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championships last month, are excited to bring another football event to their stadium.

“We are delighted that the University of Maryland has agreed to host two premier college football games at M&T Bank Stadium,” said Dick Cass, president of the Baltimore Ravens. “With Maryland's large and loyal fan base and the many supporters of West Virginia and Virginia Tech in the area, we expect both games to be sellouts. We are committed to bringing major events such as Maryland football to the Stadium and Baltimore and look forward to hosting other major events at the Stadium.”

Maryland played Navy in Baltimore in 2005, as well as in the 2010 season opener. Both games were played before near-capacity crowds (67,809 in 2005; 69,348 in 2010). The Terps downed Navy, 17-14, last season, a win that included a thrilling goal-line stand by the Maryland defense as time expired.
