Terps near deal on Baltimore game

November 21, 1997|By Paul McMullen

Maryland is close to completing arrangements that would have the football team play Georgia Tech at the Ravens' new NFL stadium next season. Athletic director Debbie Yow said that she hasn't received a contract from the Maryland Stadium Authority, but that a deal that would pay Maryland approximately $800,000 before expenses is nearly completed.

"Although negotiations have taken a long time, they have been fruitful," Yow said. "We hope that the game would be played in October, but part of that depends on the ACC's TV schedule."

Maryland last played in Baltimore in 1991, when it lost to Penn State, 47-7.
