The Maryland football team is celebrating their 125th season this fall.
With that in mind, the program announced on Monday that the team will be wearing new uniforms this coming season.
The simple black and gold pattern is traced back to the 1940s when they were used as the Terrapins’ primary colors. Former Maryland wide receiver Torrey Smith helped model the new threads on the team’s official Twitter account.
Maryland went on to announce that these would be used for Homecoming weekend, which is October 28 when they welcome Indiana to Maryland Stadium. Wide receiver D.J. Moore actually mentioned during Big Ten Media Day that Indiana actually has his next favorite uniforms in the Big Ten outside of Maryland.
The Terps have always had a history of debuting a flashy uniform each season in recent years. In 2016, the “Red Ops” uniforms debuted against Ohio State.
Some have stayed in the rotation such as the “Black Ops” and “White Ops” uniforms. Maryland wore the “Black Ops” uniforms in a 28-17 win over Michigan State during the 2016 campaign.
