Maryland Goes Old School With Alternate Jerseys Vs. Penn State
Maryland, owner of a proud 2-35-1 record all-time against Penn State, announced on Monday that the football team will join Rutgers and Ohio State in wearing an alternate uniform when it takes on the Nittany Lions on Saturday. The Terrapins will wear a special throwback jersey for this weekend’s neutral-site matchup.
The team joined with Under Armour to recreate uniforms Maryland wore in 1961 to honor the season the Terps beat Penn State for the first time.

Here’s another look at the jerseys, via Under Armour.
Admittedly, these jerseys are pretty sweet. The sleek, classic look (although almost identical to Ole Miss’ uniforms) should compliment Penn State’s all-whites well. It should remind fans of simpler times, before all the “flash” and “innovation” commonly associated with many alternates across the country over the past few years.
Even if you don’t like these new uniforms, I think Penn State fans everywhere can agree on one thing: At least Maryland isn’t throwing it back to 2014 — the second time the Terps have won in the series — so we don’t have to look at these awful excuses for a uniform.
