Maryland will play Marshall (9-4) in the Military Bowl at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium in Annapolis, the bowl's president announced on Sunday. It marks the first time the Terps will play in a bowl game since they appeared in the same game at a different venue in 2010. Maryland defeated East Carolina at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C., in Ralph Friedgen's last game as coach. That Maryland (7-5) was going to play in the Dec. 27 game less than an hour from its College Park campus had been speculated since the Terps became bowl-eligible with a road win over Virginina Tech on Nov. 16. There were still other possibilities, such as going to play in Shreveport, La., in the AdvoCare V100 Bowl.

Maryland wide receiver Ricardo Young violated team rules and has been suspended for Friday's Military Bowl, a team official said Tuesday. Young, who began the season as a reserve quarterback for the Terps, moved to receiver in October after injuries to Deon Long and Stefon Diggs left Maryland thin at the position. The junior transfer student carried the ball twice this season for seven yards.

Baltimore Sun reporters Jeff Barker and Don Markus and producer-editor Jonas Shaffer weigh in on three of the biggest topics of the past week in Maryland sports. How important was it for Maryland to make a bowl game this season? Jeff Barker: Making the Military Bowl was important for several reasons, win or lose. Maryland needed a bowl game to demonstrate that the program is ascendant - that it is on an upward arc. Remember that the Terps had to pull out of a rough, middle patch of the season in which they went 1-4. In difficult times, Maryland coach Randy Edsall has been able to point to the fact that the team's victories have increased in each of his three seasons.

Once he gets over the sting of Friday's 31-20 loss to Marshall in the Military Bowl, Maryland quarterback C.J. Brown is likely to appreciate the best drive of his Terps career, as if it were a work of art. It began on Maryland's 1-yard line after a punt by Marshall's Tyler Williams, with the Terps trailing 17-13 midway through the third quarter. It ended 99 yards later, with Brown flipping a 2-yard touchdown pass to tight end Dave Stinebaugh (Perry Hall) to give the Terps a three-point lead.

The Maryland football team knew all about Marshall's gaudy statistics - the 43 points and 502.3 yards per-game averages engineered by prolific, elusive quarterback Rakeem Cato and his spread offense. If they were going to win their first bowl game in three years, the Terps understood the risk of getting into a shootout. So Maryland tried to run the ball, control the clock and keep Cato on the sideline throughout the Military Bowl at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. But ultimately, the Terps couldn't stop Cato from hoisting the bowl's Most Valuable Player trophy over his head in the early-evening chill after a 31-20 loss before an announced 30,163 in Annapolis.

Here are five questions as Maryland plays Marshall in the Military Bowl this afternoon (2:30 p.m. on ESPN): ** Will the Terps regularly remove a linebacker and add a defensive back to defend Marshall quarterback Rakeem Cato? The Terps have often employed that strategy against other prolific passing teams, going to five - or even six - defensive backs. But here's the difficulty: Marshall can run the ball, too. It has a back, Essray Taliaferro, who topped 1,000 yards this season.

After three years of pain, Maryland football fans just wanted a chance to party in the waning days of a season. So smiles abounded in Annapolis on Friday as Terps supporters gathered to celebrate the program's first bowl appearance since 2010. The Military Bowl might be far from the pinnacle of college football. And plenty of Maryland fans might retain misgivings about third-year coach Randy Edsall. But given the negativity that surrounded the program just a few months ago, as injuries threatened to derail another season, the late-December game against Marshall struck many as a perfectly fine holiday gift.

WASHINGTON - Shouts of "We are Marshall!" rang out in the lobby of the team's downtown Washington hotel, where exuberant, green-clad fans of the Thundering Herd had gathered on the eve of Friday's Military Bowl matchup against Maryland in Annapolis. The Thundering Herd, from Conference USA, may not be as well known as Maryland, which is playing its last game before joining the Big Ten next season. But the Terps (7-5) know that Marshall (9-4) - which averages 43 points and 502.3 yards per game and is vying for its first 10-win season since 2002 - will pose a difficult test at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium.

When it comes to college football bowls, the Military Bowl in Annapolis may not seem like the most exciting of opportunities for Maryland, with the game a short bus ride away. Not to mention that the Dec. 27 date means the Terps will spend Christmas away from their families as they prepare to play Marshall. But these concerns prove to be advantages for both the program and the players, Terps coach Randy Edsall said at a news conference at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium on Thursday afternoon.

Jeremiah Johnson sensed something was wrong with his foot, but he wasn't ready to process the signals his body was sending. After sweating with his teammates through weeks of spring practices and summer training camp, it seemed too sudden - too cruel and random - for Maryland's starting cornerback to be injured in the first game of the season on a routine special-teams play. The redshirt junior was blocking for kick returner Stefon Diggs against Florida International on Aug. 31 when his left foot buckled and one of his toes was pushed backward at an awkward angle.
