Maryland is slated for single matchups against No. 8 Illinois, Indiana and Northwestern at home, in addition to No. 5 Iowa, No. 13 Michigan State, No. 23 Ohio State on the road.

Maryland’s Christmas Day matchup at Purdue marks its first game on the holiday since defeating Iowa in overtime, 78-68, in 1984 at the Rainbow Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii.
