Maryland Bowl Projections: Champ Sports Bowl Would Be Nice, But Military Bowl Seems Likely

Out of the remaining Bowl Games that are available to ACC teams, the most likely destination for the Maryland Terrapins remains the Military Bowl at RFK Stadium in Washington, DC. The local Bowl, which has already committed to East Carolina, who finished second in Conference USA, would like to add Maryland to its mix to attract a large local crowd.

Despite the closer location and the built-in fanbase that would represent the Terrapins in the bouncing stands of RFK Stadium, some believe that Maryland would still prefer to play in a more prestigious Bowl game. According to Jeff Barker of the Baltimore Sun, the Champs Sports Bowl would really be the desired location.

Maryland coaches and players and fans would love to play in the Champs Sports Bowl in Orlando. But North Carolina State might beat the Terps out. Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen has been lobbying for the Terps to play in one of the top games affiliated with the ACC.

Maryland will have to wait until the Champs Sports Bowl selects its teams on Sunday night before the team learns if it will be traveling to Orlando, or elsewhere.
