Maryland will visit Philadelphia to play Temple on Jan. 21 in a return game for last year’s BB&T Classic, according to the Owls’ nonconference schedule released Wednesday.
The game will be played at the Palestra, providing a local but off-campus venue – much like last season’s game was contested at Verizon Center.
Temple won last year’s meeting 64-61.
With that date locked in right in the middle of Maryland’s conference schedule, here’s the latest look at the Terps’ schedule in coach Mark Turgeon’s first season:
Nov. 13: UNC Wilmington (per Wilmington Star News)
Nov. 17-18, 20: Puerto Rico Tip-Off (Alabama, Colorado, Iona, Purdue, Temple, Western Michigan, Wichita State)

Nov. 29: Illinois (ACC/Big Ten Challenge)
Dec. 4?: vs. Notre Dame in the BB&T Classic at Verizon Center (assumes usual first-Sunday-in-December BB&T slot)
