DETROIT, Mich. -- The Maryland football team had an eventful first full day in Detroit as the Terps continue to prepare to take on Boston College in the 2016 Quick Lane Bowl.
After breakfast and meetings, the Terps headed to Ford Field for their first practice in Detroit. With temperatures around 30 degrees outside, the coaches and players were excited to be practicing inside the dome.
"I thought we had a really good practice," said first-year Terps Head Coach DJ Durkin. "I thought our tempo was good. We were competing. It's nice to be here in a dome and our guys enjoyed it. We've been at our practice field for the last month preparing so it's nice to be at a different venue and an NFL venue."
Both Maryland and Boston College then attended the Quick Lane Bowl welcome dinner, which was held at the Henry Ford Meseum.
The teams first gathered inside Anderson Theatre for a football panel discussion, which featured former Detroit Lions greats Herman Moore and Lomas Brown.
After the dinner, everyone was able to tour the meseum.

The team returns to Ford Field to practice again tomorrow and then will head to Gleaners Community Food Bank to help pack produce to support school-based mobile pantries.
The Terps will face the Eagles Monday, Dec. 26, at 2:30 pm on ESPN. For more information on the Quick Lane Bowl, click here.
