The Terps released their 2020 schedule yesterday.

Head coach John Tillman has announced the University of Maryland men’s lacrosse team’s 2020 schedule ahead of the program’s 95th season today. This season’s non-conference schedule features marque matchups with defending National Champion Virginia, Final Four participant Penn and NCAA quarterfinalist Notre Dame – all of which will be played at Maryland Stadium.

”I’m incredibly excited to start our 2020 journey with this year’s team,” said Tillman. “Week in and week out, we will be challenged by some of the nation’s best teams, and our home schedule will provide exciting matchups for our passionate fanbase.”

Check out Chris’ breakdown of Penn’s 2020 schedule.
