The Big Ten continues to roll out football schedules, letting Maryland learn its opponents years in advance. 

For the Terps, the football schedule will only get harder in 2016, when the B1G will go from an eight-game conference schedule to nine games.

Not only will 2016 bring nine games against the increased competition of the B1G, it will also mark the first-ever trip for the Terps to Lincoln, Neb. to face the legendary Cornhuskers.

2017 could bring excitement for Terps fans longing for a natural rival. Though the first three years in the Big Ten Maryland will close its regular season with a game against Rutgers, in 2017 that shifts to a regular season finale against Penn State. Many Terps fans would like to see that game as the finale every season.
