Young Terps: breaking down Maryland football’s 2023 expectations

Welcome back for another episode of the Young Terps podcast where we break down our expectations for Maryland football heading into the start of the 2023 season.

That starts on Saturday afternoon as Maryland hosts Towson for a 3:30 PM kickoff. It will be the first chance for Maryland to generate momentum through September with all three non-conference games inside SECU Stadium, but what is the early outlook for Maryland’s first road game at Michigan State? What are Maryland’s chances of taking an undefeated record into Columbus on Oct. 7?

We break down Maryland’s conference schedule, their chances against the top dogs and which games are the coin flip games this season. Maryland will look to win their third consecutive bowl game for the first time in program history, but heading into year five under Mike Locksley, we break down our bullish expectations while cautioning Maryland’s biggest question heading into this weekend’s season opener.

And we pose the hypothetical for fans on the possibility of a 9-3 season as the Terps look to take down the Big Ten elite, including a pair of matchups in College Park. Can Maryland get revenge against Michigan in Taulia Tagovailoa’s last home game in College Park? Can the Terps capitalize on Penn State’s young quarterback in a packed SECU Stadium? We break it all down on the latest episode of Young Terps.
