Terps selected to Quick Lane Bowl

The Maryland football team has gotten back to bowl eligibility in the first year of the DJ Durkin era.

The Maryland football team has gotten back to bowl eligibility in the first year of the DJ Durkin era.

After having clinched bowl eligibility in their final regular season game with a 31-13 victory over Rutgers, the Maryland football team learned that they will be headed to the Motor City to play former ACC foe Boston College in the 2016 Quick Lane Bowl on Dec. 26 at Ford Field in Detroit Michigan.

The Terps are playing in their third bowl game in four years and 27th overall in their program history.

“We are excited to be selected to play in the Quick Lane Bowl,” first year Maryland head coach DJ Durkin said. “Returning to the postseason is a big step in the upward trend of our program. I’m thrilled that our student-athletes, especially our seniors, will have the chance to play at Ford Field in Detroit and experience all of the special events that come with bowl week.”

Maryland has won five of their last eight bowl games and will need a familiar opponent in Detroit. Maryland was a member of the ACC with Boston College from 2005 to 2014.

Boston college finished 6-6 overall and became bowl eligible with victories in their final two regular season games. Their defense ranked third in the ACC with 39 sacks and fifth with 11 interceptions. Junior defensive end Harold Landry was a second-team All-ACC selection for the Eagles after racking up 46 tackles, 20.5 tackles for a loss, 15 sacks and seven forced fumbles this year.

The Quick Lane Bowl will kickoff at 2:30 pm and will be televised nationally on ESPN.

You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
