COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Coming off its best season under coach Randy Edsall, Maryland is ready for some Big Ten football.

The Terrapins are eager to mix it up with powerhouses such as Ohio State, Michigan and Michigan State.

Even matchups against Iowa and Indiana present a welcome departure from the drab and repetitive Atlantic Coast Conference fare.

Wide receiver Deon Long says, "We've accepted the challenge of playing different teams, of playing better teams."

A charter member of the ACC since 1953, Maryland committed to joining the Big Ten in November 2012 and officially became a member on July 1.

After going 2-10 in 2011, Maryland was 4-8 in 2012 and last year improved to 7-6 while earning a berth in the Military Bowl.
