UCF and Big Ten Conference member Maryland have scheduled a football series featuring games in the 2025 and 2028 seasons.
The Knights will play the Terps on Aug. 30, 2025, at Maryland Stadium in College Park, Maryland. Then those two teams return to face each other Sept. 9, 2028, at the Bounce House in Orlando.
“Maryland represents another strong series for UCF against a Big Ten opponent,” says UCF vice president and director of athletics Terry Mohajir. “These will be attractive intersectional matchups for fans of both programs.”
UCF and Maryland will be meeting for the third and fourth times. The previous contests came in 2016, a 30-24 Terp victory in Orlando—and in 2017, a 38-10 Knight triumph in College Park.
UCF previously has played games against other Big Ten members Michigan (2016), Nebraska (1997), Ohio State (2012), Penn State (2002, ’04, ’13, ’14), Purdue (1998, ’99), Rutgers (2009, ’13) and Wisconsin (2004).
