Maryland Terrapins College Football Tickets

The Maryland Terrapins represent the University of Maryland on the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision intercollegiate football team, formerly known as Division IA. Maryland terrapins are more popularly known as ‘the Terps’ and most often compete within the Atlantic Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC).

Originally, the school’s sports teams were known as ‘The Old Liners’. Since Maryland’s nickname was ‘Old Line State’. But then Curly Byrd suggested in 1932 that the name be changed to diamondback terrapin, which is after a type of land turtle, as Byrd spent his childhood in the Chesapeake Bay, where the species is common. Then, to cut the newspaper headlines short, they began to refer to them as “the Terps.” The shortened name was kept and is currently the official name of the school’s team. The school’s mascot is named Testudo, which is a diamondback tortoise. Testudo means ‘tortoise’ in Latin. The word has been used as a scientific nomenclature in species related to reptiles such as the order Testudine and the family Testudinidae. Also, the name most likely comes from the ancient Roman military scheme, in which soldiers completely enclose their infantry square with their shields to protect them from projectiles. Important moments and achievements

Maryland ranks third with the most ACC championships with nine, followed by Florida State with 12 and Clemson with 13. The team had already won two national championships, two Southern Conference championships, nine ACC championships, countless All-Americans and members of the Hall of Fame; he also had two undefeated seasons and 22 bowl game appearances. And with that, most of the former Terrapin players and managers have become a part of the professional soccer world.

In the year 2001, when Ralph Friedgen became head trainer for the Terrapins, they experienced a moment of rebirth since winning the ACC Championship that year. They also had new recruits wanted and adored and a five-bowl game appearance that includes three bowl championships and a BCS bowl. And for the entire time Friedgen became head coach, the Terps had an overall record of 60-33.
