Maryland football released its new alternate uniform Monday morning that will commemorate 125 years of Terps football.
The uniforms, which will be worn against Indiana for Maryland’s homecoming game on Oct. 28, look to be exclusively black and gold, paying homage to 50 percent of the state flag and the second line of the team’s victory song. As a nod to past greats of Maryland football, Torrey Smith was the star of the department’s video of the jerseys.
The uniforms, or “threads,” look to be a modern take on Maryland’s 1940s outfit. Back then, the school’s colors were exclusively black and gold, before red and white were eventually added.
New uniforms are nothing new to Maryland football, but the absence of any semblance of the state flag pattern is notable here. It’ll be a slight departure from what Terps fans are used to, but putting a new twist on a retro look is always fun.
