The Terrapins' faceoff with William and Mary will not only open the 2012 season; it'll also launch the careers of an army of new talent. In the interim between his first and second season as UMD football’s head coach, Randy Edsall recruited heavily, signing more than 25 new athletes to join veteran players such as defensive lineman Joe Vellano, a 2011 All-American returning for his senior year. It's a prime time for fresh blood too, as freshman quarterback Perry Hills calls the shots and holds the center's keys and wallet during plays. Starting at noon, fans can amp up for the afternoon's action with a stroll through Capital One Bank Terp Town, a free festival with inflatable games, giveaways, and autographs from the student athletes themselves.
During its August 31 matchup against No. 2 UCLA, Maryland’s men’s soccer team—currently ranked ninth—will hit Ludwig Field gunning for an upset. 2012 marks head coach Sasho Cirovski's 20th season at Maryland, one year after he led his players to a Sweet 16 finish with his gift for strategy, which lets him constantly outsmart opponents' attempts to smuggle the ball—disguised as a tumbleweed—across the goal line. Over the course of his career, Cirovski's teams have garnered two national championships and six College Cup appearances.
