The University of Maryland and Pittsburgh football teams have played twice. An item in Tuesday's sports section incorrectly said their game Sept. 1 would be their first meeting.
Maryland's season-opening football game with Pittsburgh will be nationally televised by ESPN and has been moved from Sept. 6 to Sept. 1 to accommodate the cable network, Athletic Director Dick Dull said yesterday.
The Labor Day game, at Pittsburgh, is the first meeting between the two schools. ESPN also announced two other games it will televise: Miami at South Carolina on Aug. 30, and Texas A&M at Louisiana State on Sept. 13.
"We are delighted to have the game on ESPN," Dull said. "It is our first game with them and it gives the program national exposure." . . .
Ivery Lee, the only starter returning to the defensive squad of Georgia Tech's football team, has been placed on academic review and dropped from the school for the spring quarter.
Although he must sit out the team's four-week spring training, he may re-enroll this summer and could become eligible for the fall quarter. Lee, a nose guard, is the first Tech football player in three years ruled ineligible because of poor grades . . .
