Maryland football unveils throwback uniforms for homecoming game vs. Michigan

The script is back. For one game, at least.

The Maryland football team unveiled throwback uniforms Tuesday for its homecoming game Nov. 2 against Michigan, featuring the script “Terps” on the helmets and pants. The red jerseys will have traditional mesh detail with black, white and gold striping on the sleeves, while the white pants will feature red and black striping.

As part of college football’s 150th anniversary celebration, the school said the uniforms will pay homage to the 1980′s Maryland teams.

“I was raised on the Terps script,” Maryland coach Mike Locksley said in a news release. “I fell in love with the teams that donned those uniforms. I remember watching guys like [quarterbacks] Boomer [Esiason] and Frank Reich guiding the Terps in those uniforms. I know our team will be excited to bring that back for homecoming.”

The uniforms vary slightly from Maryland’s original 1980′s designs, with the red helmet featuring a white stripe down the center instead of a black stripe. According to SportsLogos.net, this Brashier helmet stripe was only worn by the Terps during the 1991 season.

Maryland’s helmets featured the “Terps” script from 1982 to 1991 and 2001 to 2010. The team unveiled new uniforms for the 2011 season that included basic black and white helmets with a state flag design as a stripe. In 2013, the “Maryland Pride 2.0” uniforms were revealed, featuring the popular state flag helmets, and have largely remained unchanged.
