Throwback Uniforms from the 'Nineties for Saturday's Maryland Game

The Maryland Agricultural College (which became the University of Maryland in 1920) fielded its first football team in 1892.

The 1892 Maryland Agricultural College football team with their bowler-hatted overlord.
The 1891 Rutgers football team had a shady-looking guy in a black suit and bowler too.
This will be the last in a series that began during this inaugural Big Ten year with early photos of  Michigan's football team and continued with Ohio StateNebraskaWisconsinIndiana, and Michigan State,

Unlike some of the other Big Ten matchups this year, these teams have a little bit of history between them; the Scarlet Knights' all-time record against the Terrapins, 4 wins and 5 losses, needs to be evened up this week.
