The Maryland football team has suffered yet another blow to its quarterback situation.

The program on Sunday announced that freshman Caleb Rowe would be out for the season after tearing his ACL in Saturday’s loss to

Boston College. “I feel awful for Caleb,” Maryland head coach Randy Edsall said. “I know how excited he was to get his opportunity to be the quarter- back of this team. Caleb has a bright future ahead of him, and we will do everything we can to support him through the rehab process.”

Rowe made his collegiate debut by coming off the bench against N.C. State and leading the Terrapins on a three-play, 61-yard drive in the fourth quarter. Rowe completed both of his passes for 50 yards and had an 11-yard run during the two- minute drill.

Rowe started his first game against Boston College, finishing 23 of 42 for 240 yards and two

touchdowns. He was also intercept- ed three times against Boston College.

Rowe became the fourth Terrapin quarterback to go down to in- jury and the third signal-caller to suffer a season-ending ACL tear.

C.J. Brown suffered a torn ACL in the preseason and was re- placed by true freshman Perry Hills

who tore his ACL against N.C. State. Hills was replaced by Devin Burns who played against the Wolf- pack but suffered a broken foot and is also out for the season.

Rowe, who was the team’s last remaining scholarship quarterback, became the fourth true freshman quarterback in school history to start for Maryland.
