The Big Ten Council of Presidents/Chancellors unanimously approved the addition Monday morning, as Maryland’s athletic teams will begin competition in all sports for the 2014-15 academic year.

The school submitted a written application to join the Big Ten on Monday, which had to be approved by at least 70 percent of the Big Ten Council … Continued
