In the new five-year contract, Pennsylvania will play Maryland instead of Ohio.

WE ARE! And we will always be...
I like it - gives are Maryland pipeline kids more exposure to PA - playing in Hershey
Love this!!!!! Any way to get those Maryland kid's involved with Pennsylvania, the better!
Win win imo. Now Urbie doesn't have unfettered access to schmooze pa hs coaches.
This is great news! I'm glad we are finally mixing it up. Playing Maryland will certainly open some more pipelines in the mid-Atlantic region.

I love 247sports and 247sports loves me.
I also would that the economy has a lot to play into this decision...it can be a hike for those from Ohio to attend the game. I assume attendance (and the $$$ that comes along with that) might see a bump due to Maryland being a bit closer.
Wow!!! While this has many interesting possibilities, I am not sure of it. I always liked the tradition of PA vs OH in this game as two powerhouse high school football states. Now don't get me wrong MD has many, many talented athletes. It just seems somehow out of place to lose out on that rivalry that I remember being so big back to when I was in school in the 90's.

The rivalry stopped when Ohio started sending its second tiered kids to the game. That was several years ago. Maryland will provide a better rivalry.
Pennsylvania and Maryland actually played from 1985-1992, with PA holding a 6-2 series advantage.
Thanks for the information. I just didn't remember that. It will definitely be interesting.
