Big Ten Network Marathon: Maryland Edition


The beloved Big Ten Network has been showing the classic football, lacrosse and basketball games for each Big Ten school every day. Tomorrow, the Terps are highlighted and the glory days of football and basketball can be relived. Here is a schedule of each game being shown:

6:00-7:45 AM: 2002 National Championship-Maryland vs. Indiana-4/1/2002

Juan Dixon led the Terps on a magical run to bring home Maryland’s only basketball championship back to College Park. The game was the second lowest-scoring game in college basketball history, but Juan’s game-high 18 points paved the way to victory for Maryland.

7:45-8:00 AM: Big Ten Football Media Day: Randy Edsall

Edsall takes the podium in his first media day as a member of the Big Ten. He addresses Maryland’s expectations heading into the 2014 season.

8:00 AM-10:00 AM: 2003 Maryland vs. Florida- 12/10/2003

Gary Williams picked up his 300th career win at Maryland as the Terps upset top-ranked Florida in Gainesville 69-68. “Legendary” referee Karl Hess called the game, but luckily couldn’t prevent Maryland from victory. Just kidding, we love you Hess. Former Terp Travis Garrison hit the go-ahead bucket with 18 seconds left to give Maryland the victory.

10:00-11:00 AM: Big Ten Welcomes Maryland

11:00 AM-1:00 PM: Football: Maryland vs. Miami-11/10/1984

When Miami was a powerhouse, the Terps got steamrolled the first half and went into halftime down 31-0. Backup quarterback Frank Reich then led one of the biggest comebacks in college football history and Maryland miraculously won 42-40. Maryland finished the season ranked 12th in the AP Poll and 11th in the Coaches poll while also beating Tennessee 28-27 in the Sun Bowl.

1:00-2:45 PM: Basketball: 1986 Maryland vs. UNC-2/20/1986

The late Len Bias scored 35 points as he outshone Michael Jordan in a thrilling upset over the Tar Heels. UNC finished the year 25-1 at home with their lone loss against yours truly. Bias went on to win his second ACC player of the year award and was named to two All-American teams before getting drafted second overall by the Boston Celtics.

4:00-6:00 PM: Football: Maryland vs. NC State-11/27/2010

Danny O’Brien threw for 417 yards and all 4 touchdown passes to Torrey Smith in Maryland’s big win over North Carolina State. Maryland ran for -9 yards in their senior game and overcame a 14-point first quarter deficit to win 38-31. And you wonder why the saying goes “never bet State.”

6:00-7:45 PM: Basketball: ACC Championship Game: Maryland vs. Duke-3/11/1984

Maryland beat Duke–again–behind Bias’ 26 points. Duke couldn’t contain the lethal scorer, giving Maryland their first ACC championship game. Maryland was the first non-Carolina school to ever win the ACC tournament. Here’s a clip of the band playing “Amen” while showing Lefty Driesell in the closing moments of the 74-62 Maryland win.
