When Maryland football first released its 2019 schedule, a number of games were posted without a start time. As of Sunday, six kickoff times were still to be announced.
But on Monday, the expected start time for Maryland’s road game against Rutgers was released. The Terps and Scarlet Knights are slated to face off at noon ET in Piscataway, New Jersey.

This comes as no surprise, as a matchup between the Big Ten’s shortest-tenured teams isn’t expected to garner a lot of eyeballs. They will be on national television, however, as the action will be televised on the Big Ten Network.
Maryland still has five games — vs Indiana, at Minnesota, at Ohio State, vs Nebraska and at Michigan State — that are still without a scheduled kickoff time, though the vast majority of Terps games have been played at noon ET.
The only game currently locked into a prime time slot is this Friday’s showdown against No. 12 Penn State. That matchup is slated to begin at 8 p.m. ET, and the game can be watched on Fox Sports 1.
