It’s Halloween in College Park, and safety Josh Woods definitely won Maryland football’s costume contest.

That’s right, he dressed up as head coach DJ Durkin for the occasion. The picture of his costume was posted by the team’s Twitter account during Durkin’s weekly press conference. Naturally, we did our due diligence.
“I have seen Josh Woods’ costume,” Durkin said Tuesday. “He made a point to swing by the office. I give Josh props on that. He did a good job.”
Durkin himself will be at the stadium watching film to prepare for a matchup with Rutgers this Saturday, so he won’t be out trick-or-treating tonight. Don’t worry, though: he’ll still get his fair share of candy.
“The great part is ... when I get home, the whole house is asleep,” Durkin said. “So I get free reign right there. I can go in those Halloween bags and just comb through it and pick out the things I like. So I’m sure I’ll probably do that.”
Here’s how other teams on campus celebrated:
Track and field had a little fun with wordplay, giving out bags of candy with their track-or-treat core workout attached to it.

Women’s lacrosse held its annual costume contest on its Instagram page, with some solid group costume action.
