Maryland football fans can be assured of one thing for Saturday’s game at No. 8 West Virginia — the Terrapins will at least be well appointed. Garbed in white, head to toe, the Terps will debut yet another set of new uniforms, dubbed the “White OPS” by Maryland outfitter Under Armour.

The uniforms are designed to reveal the Maryland state flag in a more subtle way than the much-talked-about unconventional design they donned last year for their opening game against Miami. Viewed from 500 feet, the flag is visible on the jerseys. Viewed from 50 feet the flag design bleeds over to the helmets and shoes. From five feet, the flag design is visible within the numbering.

Meeting with reporters on Thursday, Maryland coach Randy Edsall gave no hint of the new uniforms.

“I’ll know what we’re wearing when we get to the stadium on Saturday,” Edsall said. “That’s the least of my worries right now. I’ve got more things to worry about in West Virginia. Geno Smith concerns me a little bit.”
