Maryland softball released its 2023 spring schedule last Wednesday. The slate features 57 games and plenty of high-level nonconference opponents.

Last season, the Terps had 29 wins, their most since 2013.

“We are very excited about our 2023 schedule,” Maryland head coach Mark Montgomery said in the release. ”It provides a great mix of teams from a variety of major conferences ... This year, we play 21 games here at Maryland Stadium. The goal is to continue to grow our fan base and show everyone what a great experience a Maryland softball game can be.”

The highlights from those 21 home games are a pair of games against Texas Tech and home Big Ten series against Michigan State, Nebraska, Penn State and Wisconsin.

The Terps will face conference opponents Illinois, Iowa, Rutgers and Indiana on the road.

Before conference play begins, though, Maryland will compete against some of the best programs in the country in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to start the season on Feb. 9-12. There, the Terps will take on Oregon, BYU, California Baptist, Oklahoma State and North Dakota State.

Right after, Maryland will play North Carolina and Virginia in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

Other notable nonconference games include a showdown with Baylor on Feb. 24 and one-off games with local teams like Maryland-Eastern Shore, UMBC, Coppin State and Towson.
