After the COVID-19 pandemic put the brakes on all Big Ten fall athletic seasons outside of football, Maryland men’s soccer has announced its schedule for the upcoming spring season.

The Terps’ season will open on Feb. 19 against Penn State in Happy Valley. The away fixture is one of five on this year’s men’s soccer schedule as part of a 10-game, conference-exclusive calendar. No preseason rankings have been released yet.

“I’m appreciative of the work done by the Big Ten Conference, our Big Ten coaches, and our respective institutions to make this schedule a reality,” head coach Sasho Cirovski said in a release. “My players have done everything we’ve asked of them and more since we started preparations for a season in August and I am thrilled they will be able to show off their hard work and dedication this spring.”

Maryland returns to the pitch for the first time since losing in the second round of the 2019 NCAA Tournament, which came one year after its National Championship run in 2018. Nine starters from last year’s squad are returning this year, including 2019 leading goal scorer Eric Matzelevich.

Here is the full schedule:
