1950 Maryland Terrapins Football Team
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 1950 Maryland Terrapins football team represented the University of Maryland in National Collegiate Athletic Association college football in its 30th season as a member of the Southern Conference. Maryland was led by fourth-year head coach Jim Tatum, who Time magazine called "the most successful major college coach in the game" during his nine-year tenure at College Park. To date, Tatum remains the winningest Maryland football coach of the modern era, with a winning percentage of 0.819. The team was led on the field by sophomore quarterback and future Heisman Trophy runner-up Jack Scarbath who made his first career start in the season-opener. The highlight of the season was Maryland's upset victory over second-ranked Michigan State, 34-7, in what was that team's only loss of the season. Two weeks later, however, the Terrapins' bowl game hopes were ended with a Homecoming defeat at the hands of North Carolina State.
