This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.
Maryland men’s soccer unveiled its entire 2021 schedule in an announcement from the program’s head coach Sasho Cirovski Thursday.
With the Terps’ Big Ten slate already previously revealed, the rest of the team’s nonconference schedule was officially listed. Maryland will face Temple on August 14 and Pittsburgh on August 21 in what will be consecutive exhibition matches to kick off the season.
The Terps will open their regular season schedule against Charlotte on August 26. They’ll follow that up with matchups against UMBC, George Mason, Virginia and then Georgetown before squaring off with their first Big Ten opponent of the season, Michigan, on September 17.
To round out the nonconference slate, Maryland will also play High Point and Pacific later in the season.
The Terps played just 10 Big Ten regular season games under COVID regulations last spring, but now they will have 15 regular season matchups and two exhibitions for the upcoming campaign.
