Last year, Maryland's football uniforms made their dramatic debut on the season's opening night. While some called the glitzy helmets and jerseys a "fashion fumble," there was no argument that the school generated plenty of buzz. This year, the school plans to showcase a new field. Maryland is in the processing of digging up Byrd Stadium's natural grass. It will be replaced by synthetic turf. An announcement — complete with renderings — is expected in the next several weeks.

COLLEGE PARK - Randy Edsall's goal this week was to keep the pre-game preparation as routine as possible. The Maryland football coach told his team that Ohio State is just another opponent, that the Buckeyes have good players but the Terps do too. Nothing changed about Maryland's practice schedule. Edsall even turned down numerous interview requests because he did not want his players to see him doing anything different than he would during a normal week. But Edsall, his players and the rest of the program recognize the significance of Saturday's game against No. 20 Ohio State.

Back for a second season, we'll be previewing each of Maryland's football games by conducting a Q&A with a reporter who covers the Terps' next opponent. This week, we traded emails with Bill Rabinowitz , Ohio State beat reporter for The Columbus Dispatch. Be sure to check out  more of their coverage here  before the Terps and Buckeyes kick off Saturday at noon for the first Big Ten game at Byrd Stadium. Tracking the Terps: Ohio State wasn't overly impressive when the Buckeyes came out this way to open against Navy, and J.T. Barrett looked like a freshman through the first two weeks of the season.

COLLEGE PARK -- As the final gun of his final game at Byrd Stadium sounded yesterday, Scott Milanovich jogged onto the field and shook hands with several Virginia players, then turned and sprinted for the locker room.He was the first Maryland player to leave the field after Virginia's 21-18 win, and if his exit wasn't intentionally rushed, it certainly was symbolic. Who could blame Milanovich for wanting this year to end as soon as possible?Talk about a slump. Since the end of last season, he has a)

COLLEGE PARK -- Rising out of the rubble is a building that suggests that Maryland finally is going the extra yard in renovating its athletic facilities.In place of the 40-year-old press box at Byrd Stadium is a five-story structure that will house more than just the literary lions on fall afternoons.The entire stadium bowl has been cleared of the deteriorating concrete, repaired and resurfaced with a gleaming white finish. The aluminum benches are new. Men's and women's restroom facilities are being increased.

Can it really only have been eight weeks since Maryland opened the season with its new coach and new uniforms on a 77-degree night, beating Miami, 32-24? Saturday felt so much ... colder. You could see it in Danny O'Brien's face after Saturday's 28-17 loss to Boston College -- Maryland's fourth straight defeat. You could tell that he really believed after that Miami game, in which he passed for 348 yards, that the Terps could contend this season for an ACC crown. You know what's happened since early September -- injuries, quarterback shuffling and a schedule that has exposed Maryland's inexperience and lack of depth.

The past three years of Maryland football success have also made a number of off-the-field improvements possible in College Park. Since coach Ralph Friedgen arrived, Maryland has received a new scoreboard at Byrd Stadium, a new artificial turf practice facility, a remodeled weight room, a remodeled dining hall and a renovated Gossett Football Team House. The next big push will be to expand Byrd Stadium, adding both additional seats and luxury suites. Maryland athletic director Debbie Yow said Wednesday that the athletic department recently commissioned a feasibility study that will look into how much the school could sell luxury suites for. That would be the first step in getting initial approval from university president C.D. "Dan" Mote Jr. "That's when we start building a funding formula for potential expansion," Yow said.

The Big Ten Conference announced the sites and weekends of the 2015 men's and women's lacrosse conference schedules Tuesday, the same day that Maryland and Rutgers officially joined the conference as full members and Johns Hopkins came on board as an affiliate member in men's lacrosse. The Terps, Scarlet Knights and Blue Jays join Penn State, Ohio State, Michigan and Northwestern (women only). The 2015 conference schedule begins the weekend of March 27-29.

Goodbye, Blue Devils, Cavaliers and Tar Heels. Farewell to Duke's venerable Cameron Indoor Stadium, to the 85-year football rivalry with Virginia and to myriad trips to destinations characterized by sweet tea and Southern drawls. On Tuesday, the University of Maryland officially leaves the North Carolina-based Atlantic Coast Conference for the more prosperous Big Ten Conference, a Midwest-oriented league known for its football heritage and expanding television network. So many changes are in store for Maryland, and obstacles remain - notably, the ACC's lingering legal effort to force the school to pay a $52.2 million exit fee. But the school says the transition is on track, from the celebratory events planned to details as small as the dozens of ACC marks and logos that need replacing.

Mike Chanenchuk is not invincible, and he's smart enough to realize that. Maryland's leading scorer was limited by an injured ankle in the Terps' 12-6 victory over Navy on Saturday, but surely, he would be willing and able for Saturday's NCAA tournament first-round game against Cornell at 5 p.m. at Byrd Stadium in College Park, right? Not necessarily, Chanenchuk said. “I can't say that, just because it's kind of day-to-day right now,” the attackman said Tuesday afternoon.

A decision by Towson University officials to return the school's allotment of tickets to Saturday's football game at Maryland was done as a "service" to its fans, athletic director Mike Waddell said. Waddell said the number of tickets available on the "secondary" market had reduced the value and made better seats available at a price lower than what Maryland was offering. Waddell said it had nothing to do with the location of the seats, in the corner of the second deck at Byrd Stadium.

College Park -- He tried to explain it to them, the magnitude of today's homecoming game, the storied rivalry between the programs in bordering states and their coaches. Blank faces stared back at Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen. While the young squad might not grasp the history between Maryland and Virginia, it seems to understand the future implications of a loss to - or a win against - the No. 19-ranked Cavaliers (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) at noon today. The 2-2 Terps are 0-2 in Byrd Stadium, and 1-1 in the ACC. The toughest part of the schedule has yet to come, with Virginia Tech, Florida State and Boston College looming in the latter half of the season.

Here is a sampling of Tillman's reaction just minutes after the bracket was unveiled. On Maryland getting the No. 7 seed: We didn't know what to expect. We were hoping for a home game just by the nature of being back at Byrd.

COLLEGE PARK - Maryland and Navy said all the right things about continuing their series, but with the Terps moving to the Big Ten Conference this summer, its likely that their annual rivalry will have to move from late April and early May to February or early March. “Our goal is to keep it going,” coach John Tillman said after No. 7 Maryland's 12-6 victory over the Midshipmen on Saturday at Byrd Stadium. “I think it's pretty important to a lot of people around here. … We understand the importance and the history of the rivalry.
