The University of Maryland football team will make its 29th bowl appearance when it meets North Carolina State in the 2022 Duke’s Mayo Bowl at noon Dec. 30 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, N.C. The game will be televised nationally on ESPN.
Maryland will be making its second consecutive bowl appearance after defeating Virginia Tech, 54-10, in the 2021 Pinstripe Bowl. The Terps concluded the 2022 regular season with a 7-5 record. Maryland ranks third in the Big Ten in passing offense (259.3 yards per game) and fourth in scoring offense (29.2 points per game).
“We’re thrilled to be selected to play in the Duke’s Mayo Bowl,” said Maryland Head Coach Michael Locksley. “Earning back-to-back bowl berths is another significant step for our program, and I’m also excited for our seniors to have another chance to play in a big-time game. I’m also happy that our fans will be able to drive down and represent us as we take on a former ACC rival.”
The Terps are led by quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa, who ranks second in the Big Ten in completions and completion percentage (68.6), and third in passing yards. Tagovailoa is also the program leader in career touchdown passes (50), career passing yards (7,658), total offense (7,843) and 300-yard passing games (12).
Maryland and NC State are even in their 70 meetings: 33-33-4. The Terps and Wolfpack met annually when Maryland was in the ACC, with the Terps winning the last meeting in 2013, a 41-21 win in Raleigh in the Terps’ final conference game.
