Maryland announced on Thursday that football season ticket sales have increased 25 percent since last year. That means coach Randy Edsall will receive a $100,000 bonus, according to Edsall's contract.

Edsall signed a six-year deal with the Terps in 2011 that is worth $2 million annually.

Among the incentives in the contract is a $100,000 bonus if Maryland's season ticket sales increase 25 percent or more in a year.

In addition to season ticket sales, the Terps' overall attendance is up 25 percent from last season, the biggest increase of any school within the Power 5 conferences.

Maryland is 4-1 heading into Saturday's matchup with No. 20 Ohio State in College Park, which the Terps announced Thursday is Maryland's first sold-out football game since 2008.

USA Today first reported Edsall's bonus.
