Like cliff diving or ferret ownership, football is an endeavor best watched from the sidelines. Witness acts of bodily bravery with today’s GrouponLive deal: for $18, you get one upper-level ticket for a seat in Sections 305–312 (a $27 value) at a University of Maryland home football game at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium in College Park, plus an official UMD T-shirt (a $15 value; a $42 total value). Choose between the following games:
- Against Temple on Saturday, September 24, at 12:30 p.m.
- Against Towson on Saturday, October 1. Kickoff time is TBA.
Helmed by new head coach Randy Edsall and steeled by last season’s Military Bowl win, the Terrapins plan to shell-shock opponents with cunning strategies and bone-rattling tackles. After kicking off the 2011 campaign with a big win against ACC opponent Miami, the Terps continue their slow march toward obtaining a bowl invite during back-to-back interconference showdowns with Temple and Towson. Quarterback Danny O’Brien, who won last year’s ACC Rookie of the Year award, returns for his sophomore season sporting a hardened shell and a redesigned, much-talked-about new uniform. With 12 other starters returning to the team—including former ACC Players of the Week Joe Vellano and Cameron Chism—the Terps hope to confuse their opponents with deft ventriloquism and add a 25th bowl appearance to their history books.
Having recently undergone a major upgrade, the 54,000-seat Byrd Stadium features a state-of-the-art scoreboard and a timeless brick veneer that complements the university’s Georgian aesthetic. Groupon ticketholders will help fill the upper deck with the team’s signature red and yellow, preventing the groundskeepers from dousing it with ketchup and mustard left over from the concession stands.
