How will Maryland fare in the Big Ten?

The Big Ten released its conference football schedule for the 2014 season, the first with Maryland as a member. The local highlights:

*Maryland's first game as a member of the Big Ten comes on Saturday, Sept. 27 at Indiana. Will mark the meeting with the Hoosiers since 1935.

*Next comes the first home game...wow, Ohio State. While the ACC sends Maryland out the door without home dates against Duke or UNC, the Big Ten hooks the Terps up with a major opponent at Byrd Stadium right from the start.

*Old rivalry (albeit one-sided) with Penn State restarts on Nov. 1 at State College. The two sides have played 37 times, but not since 1993.

*The Terps visit Michigan and the Big House on Saturday, No. 22. Maryland last played in Ann Arbor in 1990.

*Only games against Iowa and at Wisconsin are not East Division games.
