The school was once a powerhouse in black college football, producing five undefeated seasons between 1947 and 1960. Like many smaller colleges, the high costs associated with operating an NCAA Division I football program and complying with the federal Title IX gender-equity law became too much of a burden, and subsequently the team was disbanded following the 1979 season.

In 1948, Maryland State College and Albright College played one of the first intercollegiate football game between an historically black institution and a majority-white institution.
