The University of Maryland football team will make its 30th bowl appearance when it meets Auburn in the 2023 TransPerfect Music City Bowl on Dec. 30 at Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tenn. The 2 p.m. game will be televised nationally on ABC.
"This will be our third straight year participating in a bowl game, which is a credit to our players and the consistency we're building within our program,” said Maryland Head Coach Michael Locksley. “We're excited to get back out on the practice field and continue the development of our players before we travel to Nashville to take on a really good Auburn team."
Maryland defeated No. 23 North Carolina State, 16-12, in the 2022 Duke's Mayo Bowl and Virginia Tech, 54-10, in the 2021 Pinstripe Bowl. A victory over Auburn would give the Terrapins their first undefeated three-year stretch in bowl games in program history.
Maryland concluded the 2023 regular season 7-5, their third consecutive winning season under Locksley's guidance. Maryland ranks second in the Big Ten in total offense with 393.8 yards per game, and leads the league in passing yards per game with 284.8.
Auburn (6-6) edges Maryland 2-1 all-time, but the teams have not met since 1983. The last time the Terps faced an SEC team in a bowl game was in 2002, when Maryland defeated Tennessee, 30-3, in the Peach Bowl.
