Rooting for the Terps is just part of Maryland culture. Named after the adorable yet feisty diamondback terrapins that are native to the state, the Maryland Terrapins are an equally plucky football team that never go down without a fight. The Terps have won 11 conference championships; the most recent victory occurred in 2001 under the leadership of coach Ralph Friedgen. The Maryland Terrapins colors are red, black, white and gold, just like the colors on the Maryland state flag. Rival teams include the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Navy Midshipmen. The Maryland Terrapins won the Sugar Bowl in 1951, and they played in but lost the Orange Bowl in 1953. The team has also created Hall of Famers like Randy White and Stan Jones. Fans are always waiting for the next time the Terrapins come out of their shells. Catch the Terps the next time they play when you buy your tickets at StubHub.
