Maryland scores night kickoff for game at Central Florida

University of Maryland football player Will Likely and coach D.J. Durkin speak at the 62nd annual Touchdown Club of Annapolis banquet Thursday night.

Maryland's game at Central Florida on Sept. 17 will kick off at 7 p.m., the school announced Thursday, giving the Terps their third scheduled night game this fall.

The Terps' visit to the Knights in Orlando, Fla., will be televised on CBS Sports Network.

Maryland will face Florida International under the lights in a Friday night matchup the week before, and the Terps will host Michigan State for a night game at Maryland Stadium on Oct. 22.

Maryland's three night games during coach DJ Durkin's first season in 2016 are the most the Terps have had in one season since 2011, which was former coach Randy Edsall's first season in College Park. Maryland hosted Miami and Clemson at home and played Notre Dame at FedEx Field in Landover in night clashes that season.
