The Maryland Terrapins will take on in-state rival, Towson, on Oct. 1 at Byrd Stadium in College Park, Maryland.
The two schools have never met on the gridiron, but given the history and reputation of the two programs, the Terps will be expected to win handily.
However, the game may have added importance for Maryland, as the Terps kick off the season with home games against the University of Miami (FL) and West Virginia University.
The October contest will be the Tigers first road game of the season, and one of just five road games on Towson's 2011 schedule.
Maryland is coming off of a nine-win season a year ago, but doing so with a new head coach, former UConn shot-caller Randy Edsall.
Meanwhile, Towson will be looking for an upset in an attempt to take home state bragging rights and improve on a dismal 1-10 season from a year ago.
Here are five things to watch for.
