Here are a few of the programs of interest:

1. National Championship game against Indiana.

No matter how old you were when this championship occurred, this is a fun way to re-live an exciting time in Maryland basketball history. From Juan Dixon to Lonny Baxter, this team was loaded with talent that out-matched everyone in their way en route to their first National Championship with Gary Williams at the helm.

The younger generation gets to gain more appreciation for what they had the chance to witness while others get to re-live a fun and exciting moment. Even though the past few years of Maryland basketball has been rough, to say the least, this is a chance to break away from that for a moment to remember the good times while the current team has a lot of promise.

2. Maryland football classic vs. NC State

Everyone loves to see the success former Terps have at the professional ranks. Torrey Smith is an emerging Wide Receiver for the Baltimore Ravens, and his show-out game came against NC State in 2010 with Danny O'Brien throwing him the ball. The two paced an electric offense for the Terps with O'Brien throwing four touchdown passes to Smith that game. Smith would have 14 receptions that game as well.

3. Maryland Basketball Classic: 1986 vs. North Carolina

There truly is no better way to say goodbye to the Carolina Bias than by watching Len Bias torch the Tar Heels for 35 points en route to a Maryland victory. Later in the day the network will also air the ACC championship game against Duke where Bias was named Tournament MVP.

Notes:

-There are a lot of times where the Randy Edsall press conference from media day will be shown. Whether you find that annoying or informative, you will have a multitude of opportunities to tune in to see what the coach has to say.

- The championship game against Indiana and the comeback against Miami from Frank Reich and the 1984 football team will be re-aired later in the day for those who cannot tune-in early in the day.

Welcome to the Big Ten, Maryland!
