Maryland Terrapins, popularly known as the Terps, are athletics teams from the University of Maryland that participate in NCAA Division I. Having joined the ACC in 1952, Maryland is a founding member of the league and is now also a part of the Football Bowl Subdivision program. Rutgers Scarlet Knights, known simply as the Scarlet Knights, are the athletic teams representing Rutgers University. In sports, they are primarily famous as the 'Birth Place of College Football' since the first intercollegiate football game took place there in November 1869. In this game the school lost to Princeton University, formerly called College of New Jersey. Today, twenty-seven Rutgers teams compete in NCAA Division I and will soon be joining the Big Ten Conference sometime this year. The Terps and Scarlet Knights are soon to play football at the former's home ground, Byrd Stadium that is known for having accommodated a record crowd of more than fifty-eight thousand. The upcoming Maryland Terrapins vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights game has stirred up much excitement among football fans, making Maryland Terrapins vs. Rutgers Scarlet Knights tickets a sought-after treat.
The Terrapins will soon be leaving the ACC's Atlantic Division to join the Big Ten Conference instead. Since 1950, their home games have been held at College Park's Byrd Stadium which is also where they hold their lacrosse events. The team's colors of gold, red, black and white have been taken from the state's flag. The Terrapins' nickname, which comes from the native turtle species of the state, was adopted in 1933. Among the many achievements of the Terps is one national championship recognized by the NCAA; two Southern Conference championships; and nine ACC championships. Other accomplishments include eleven consensus All-Americans, twenty-four appearances in bowl games and many inductees in the Hall of Fame. In addition, they possess the third-highest number of ACC championships, just behind Florida State and Clemson. Several former Terps coaches and players have entered professional football including NFL Draft picks.
Rutgers Scarlet Knights are known for introducing football at college level as well as for sharing the national championship of 1869 with Princeton University but had not been successful with sports for many years. They dropped down to being among the worst teams of Division I-A, recording many consecutive losing seasons that raised discussions of demoting the team to Division I-AA. Through most of their years, the Knights were not part of any official football conference. They remained independent in the time when the earliest football leagues were being established. At present however, they compete in Division I-A alongside which they are members of the well-known Big East Conference. In recent years, they have played fairly well and as of 2005 have made it to seven bowl games and won five.
