After months of impasses and stalled negotiations, Maryland and Navy agreed to play each other at Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium to open the 2010 season, athletic directors from both schools announced yesterday.

"The citizens of Maryland have made it clear they look forward to this game," Maryland Athletic Director Debbie Yow said.

Under terms of the contract, each school will receive $1.4 million, provided at least 60,000 attend.

The last meeting between Maryland and Navy -- played before nearly 68,000 fans in Baltimore -- resulted in a dramatic 23-20 Terrapins victory in 2005. The game, which will be played Sept. 4, 2010, will be sold as part of season ticket packages for both schools, though Maryland will be designated as the home team.

"We were all always well intended to play this game again since the last time we played it," said Navy Athletic Director Chet Gladchuk, whose school leads the all-time series 14-6. "It was a matter of working things out."

"I would like to see it as an annual game," Maryland Coach Ralph Friedgen said. "But that's not for me to decide."

Terrapins Note: Quarterback Jordan Steffy may be medically cleared in time to be available Saturday against Clemson, Friedgen said yesterday. Steffy, Maryland's starter to begin the season, hasn't played since suffering a concussion against Rutgers on Sept. 29.
