Last year, Maryland's football uniforms made their dramatic debut on the season's opening night. While some called the glitzy helmets and jerseys a "fashion fumble," there was no argument that the school generated plenty of buzz.
This year, the school plans to showcase a new field.
Maryland is in the processing of digging up Byrd Stadium's natural grass. It will be replaced by synthetic turf.
An announcement — complete with renderings — is expected in the next several weeks.
In the meantime, the school is not disclosing which brand of turf is being installed. It says no final decisions have yet been made on the field designs.
