Maryland is 55-34-4 in Homecoming games, and blew out Purdue 50-7 at last year’s event. That brought the Terps to 4-0 in 2016, though they’d end the season 6-7. The win provided excitement for the start of the DJ Durkin era, and he’s brought in a top-20 recruiting class for 2017.
Maryland is 1-2 against Indiana since joining the Big Ten, with their their only victory in the series coming in 2014. The Terps won 37-15 in Bloomington for their first-ever conference win.
Fans will get their first look at this year’s squad at Maryland’s spring game Saturday. The game starts at 12:30 p.m. ET and we’ll have multiple reporters on site.
