NCAA Football: Texas at Maryland Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland football continues to get national recognition after upsetting Texas for the second year in a row. A day after junior Antoine Brooks and freshman Jeshaun Jones were named Big Ten Co-Defensive Player and Co-Freshman of the Week, respectively, the team was recognized as the Reveal Suits Team of the Week by the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA).

According to the FWAA, this was the first time Maryland has won the award in its 17-year history. All FBS and FCS schools are eligible, and the award is announced on “Off Campus with Mark Packer,” which airs weekdays from 4-7 p.m. on ESPNU Radio on SiriusXM.

The Terps beat out Cincinnati, Virginia Tech and LSU for the award. The FWAA has been around since 1941, and is a group of over 1,400 journalists, broadcasters, publicists and key executives “in all the areas that involve the game,” according to the organization.

Maryland will be looking to move to 2-0 for the third straight season this weekend when it travels to Bowling Green.
