Maryland football's inaugural Big Ten football schedule is coming in to a clearer picture, as kickoff times and television schedules for two of the Terps' first three games were announced Wednesday by the conference.
August 30th's season opener against James Madison will kick off at 3:30 p.m. ET on the Big Ten Network. The game will be played in College Park, and is the last time the two schools will meet for the foreseeable future (the Big Ten is moving away from scheduling FCS schools, but current scheduling contracts are honored).
Maryland's third game of the season, in College Park against West Virginia, will kick off at noon ET and will also be televised on the Big Ten Network. The Terps blew out the Mountaineers in Baltimore last season by a score of 37-0.
