Just 29 days before it starts its 2019 season, Maryland men’s lacrosse has finally announced its full slate of games.

It’s a typically challenging schedule for a John Tillman team. The Terps will face five NCAA Tournament teams from last season, as well as six teams ranked in the Nike/US Lacrosse Preseason Poll. Maryland will play eight games at Maryland Stadium, starting with a season-opening matchup against Bucknell on Feb. 2.

The nonconference schedule features four NCAA Tournament teams, with the Terps hosting Richmond and Villanova and traveling to Notre Dame and Albany. Maryland will also take on longtime rivals North Carolina and Navy, with the Tar Heels coming to College Park on March 23 for the final game before Big Ten play. Maryland will travel to Penn after hosting the Quakers last year, and will take on Colgate for the first time since 2013 in a February midweek matchup.

After that, Maryland will head into Big Ten play looking for a share of its seventh straight regular season title. The schedule is flipped from last year, so the Terps will host Penn State, Michigan and Johns Hopkins and travel to Rutgers and Ohio State. Once again, the annual matchup against the archrival Blue Jays will be the final game of the season.

If all goes according to plan, Maryland will look to head to Philadelphia for Championship Weekend for its eighth Final Four in nine years under Tillman. The Terps start the year ranked No. 3 in the Nike/US Lacrosse Preseason Poll and Inside Lacrosse’s Faceoff Yearbook.

  • Feb. 2 vs. Bucknell
