Maryland football’s 2019 season continues to exceed expectations.

The Terps were ranked No. 21 in the AP Top 25 poll released Sunday. The program hasn't been rated this high since 2006 — 13 years ago. Maryland was last ranked in the Top 25 in 2013.

The ranking follows Maryland’s dominant 63-20 win over then-No. 21 Syracuse on Saturday, which shocked the country to say the least. Now the Terps take over the Orange’s spot.

Maryland also made the USA TODAY Amway Coaches Poll, coming it at No. 25.

Four Big Ten opponents Maryland faces later this season were also ranked, all of which came in higher: No. 6 Ohio State, No. 10 Michigan, No. 13 Penn State and No. 18 Michigan State.

Now with a ranking next to its name, the Terps enter Week 3 of the college football season in preparation for its first road game against Temple. The Owls upset Maryland last season, taking a 35-14 win in College Park, so the Terps will come into the game with a vengeance.
