Maryland's home football game against Michigan State on Nov. 15 will be a prime-time kickoff on the Big Ten Network.
The network announced a six-game prime-time schedule Tuesday morning. It included an 8 p.m. start time for the Terps' game against the Spartans, last year's conference champions.
It'll be the Maryland's first scheduled televised prime-time game since the Terps faced Notre Dame at FedEx Field on Nov. 12, 2011, and their first at Byrd Stadium since a game against Clemson on Oct. 15, 2011.
Maryland and Michigan State have met just five times in football, with the Spartans winning four of those games.
Their last meeting was in 1950, when the Terps upset the No. 2 Spartans, 34-7. Michigan State hasn’t visited College Park since 1944.
Maryland, entering its first year in Big Ten, wasn't picked for any of the conference's prime-time games on ESPN.
In addition to Michigan State, the Terps have conference home games this fall against Ohio State, Iowa and Rutgers. They visit Indiana, Wisconsin, Penn State and Michigan.
Times and television information for the other games will be announced at a later date.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
