It may or may not be the biggest game in Maryland football history, but Saturday's Big Ten debut for the Maryland Terrapins will be its biggest since at least 2008.

According to a release from the university, Maryland hasn't sold out Byrd Stadium since November 2008, when the Terps played host to Florida State in a nationally televised prime-time game. 

But if you're envisioning a pro-Buckeyes crowd like the one that traveled to Berkeley in 2013, you might be wrong. As Testudo Times noted, Oho State reportedly returned part of their ticket allotment.

Byrd Stadium's capacity, for the record, is listed at 54,000. Ohio Stadium's attendance for the Cincinnati game was listed at over 108,000.
