The Division I NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision team of The University of Maryland is named the Maryland Terrapins and they compete within the Atlantic Division of the Atlantic Coast Conference. The team has an overall record of 600-524-43 and has won nine ACC championships, the most recent being in 2001. The team has made numerous Bowl appearances, including six throughout the 2000s. The Terps, as they are commonly called, hope to come back from a disappointing 2009 season and they have thirteen starters from last year to help them, including two All-ACC selections.



Most would consider Virginia to be Maryland's rival in the ACC and the two are often spoilers for one another when it comes to making it to bowl or championship games. West Virginia has often been considered one of Maryland's oldest rivals as well. West Virginia and Maryland first competed in 1919 and have met 46 times since then. The series between the two was put on hold for the past two seasons, but resumes in 2010. Others would name Navy as a rival to Maryland; the two had a 40-year hiatus but resumed competition with one another in 2005.

The nickname of the team, Terrapins, can be traced back to 1928 though they did have a variety of nicknames previous to that. The current name comes from Dr. Curley Byrd, former University of Maryland coach, Vice President and President. Dr. Byrd suggested that the namesake of the team become the diamondback terrapin, a species of turtle common in the state. Over the years the name has often been condensed to "Terps." That nickname seems to have stuck and is often used by the school itself. The mascot for the team is named Testudo, which means both "turtle" in Latin and is the name of an ancient military tactic from the Romans. The graduating class of 1933 purchased a 300-pound bronze replica of the mascot and a replica was added near Byrd Stadium in 1992. Today's pre-game tradition for the players is to walk through "Terp Alley," a 200-yard walk to the locker rooms, to touch the bronze Testudo mascot.
