Byrd Stadium to become Maryland Stadium after regents vote

The University of Maryland will strip the name of a former school president who opposed racial integration from its football stadium after a debate at the flagship campus over whether tradition and historical legacies must bend to modern values.

The University System of Maryland Board of Regents voted Friday to change the name of Harry C. "Curley" Byrd Stadium to Maryland Stadium.
