LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The University of Maryland football team will trade its state pride for national pride this weekend when it takes on West Virginia University in College Park.
The Terrapins, whose uniforms typically incorporate some portion of the Maryland state flag, will wear uniforms designed to honor the 200th anniversary of the writing of the “Star-Spangled Banner,” which is being celebrated this week in Baltimore with a Star-Spangled Spectacular.
“This weekend, the Terrapin football team will take the field in a historically inspired uniform that pays homage to the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Baltimore at Fort McHenry and the Star-Spangled Banner,” the university says.
The Maryland athletic department tweeted out photos of the special uniforms Tuesday morning.
The university also announced a 10-year extension with Under Armour on Tuesday, keeping the Baltimore-based company the official outfitter of the Terps’ athletic programs through 2024.
