SANTA CLARA — Stanford and Maryland will play in the Foster Farms Bowl in Santa Clara, California, on Dec. 30.

The matchup was announced Sunday.

Maryland went 7-5 in its first year in the Big Ten, finishing third in the conference's East Division.

Levi's Stadium is about 15 miles from the Stanford campus, while the Terrapins will travel about 2,800 miles.
