Maryland football’s spring game is Saturday. It will be fans’ first chance to watch the Terps in four months, and the last opportunity for another four. Every school sets this game up differently, but here’s what Maryland will do:

This is the exact same system the Terps ran last year, when the format resulted in a 51-35 win for the defense. In 2015, Maryland split its roster in half, assigning players to “Red” and “White” teams. In 2014, the Terps carried over a running offense-defense tally from practice, which led to a 187-143 offensive win that makes less sense with each passing day.
Regardless of the format, this is mostly about giving fans a sneak peek at what this team could be, and which players could make an impact. With such a long gap between meaningful football games, though, that’s more than enough.
Saturday’s game kicks off at 12:30 p.m. ET.
