Maryland football has announced a 2024 home matchup with the Toledo Rockets Wednesday.
While the 2024 season is still several years away, the Terps have been busy adding nonconference matchups, as this marks the third of its kind for 2024. Toledo joins UConn as teams that are scheduled to visit College Park in Fall 2024, while Maryland is scheduled to play Virginia on the road.
The Rockets finished the 2019 season an even 6-6 record, though they didn’t participate in a bowl game. There were 79 eligible teams at the end of the season, and with just 39 games on the slate, Toledo became the odd team out.
The Sept. 21, 2024 matchup and it marks the first meeting between the Terps and Rockets.
