KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Former Maryland quarterback Kasim Hill has transferred to Tennessee.
Tennessee athletic department spokesman Zach Stipe confirmed Thursday that the Volunteers have...
Here's what to watch in the Big Ten this week:
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — During a harsh season in which the Maryland football team has been forced to deal with an array of setbacks — none worse than the death of player Jordan McNair — the Terrapins have repeatedly showed their resiliency.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Maryland opened up its passing game and fortified an already formidable running attack with seldom-used Javon Leake.
The result was a feel-good 63-33 rout over Illinois, one that was definitely worth singing about well into Saturday night.
"The locker room, we're in there singing that (Maryland fight) song, those guys are excited," interim coach Matt Canada said. "We found a way to win. We played good on offense, good on defense, good on special teams."
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — When Illinois and Maryland meet on the football field for the first time Saturday, they will find the similarities in the teams run deep — with emphasis on the word "run."
Led by junior Reggie Corbin, who averages 7.89 yards per carry, Illinois ranks third in the Big Ten with an average of 226.1 yards rushing per game. Maryland, behind the versatile Ty Johnson, is one notch back with 219.9.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Maryland interim coach Matt Canada came up with all sorts of reasons why the Terrapins' offense has been extremely inconsistent.
After talking Tuesday about the harsh wind in the game against Iowa, the Hawkeyes' ball control and the failure to get star running back Ty Johnson involved, Canada finally conceded, "We had a bad game, and ultimately it's on me."
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — After watching Maryland ring up 34 points and 379 yards, Terrapins interim coach and offensive coordinator Matt Canada pulled a reverse and spoke glowingly about the defense.
And why not? Maryland picked off five passes, yielded only 179 yards and took a shutout into the final minute of a 34-7 rout of Rutgers on Saturday.
"We played exceptionally well and unbelievably well on defense," Canada said. "On offense, we scored enough points to win the game."
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Maryland interim coach Matt Canada has used both his quarterbacks in all five games this season, jockeying between Kasim Hill and Tyrrell Pigrome in an effort to get more production from an offense that has relied heavily on the run.
Both quarterbacks run well, yet neither has distinguished himself as the passer the Terrapins (3-2, 1-1 Big Ten) desperately need.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The quarterback carousel at Maryland keeps churning round and round, and again this week there is uncertainty about who will be on board when it stops.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Operating as a pocket passer in a read-option offense, former third-stringer Max Bortenschlager has enjoyed a surprisingly effective stint as Maryland's quarterback.
Forced into action after the Terrapins' top two quarterbacks sustained season-ending knee injuries, Bortenschlager has thrown nine touchdown passes and only four interceptions while keeping Maryland (4-4, 2-3 Big Ten) in the hunt for a second consecutive bowl bid.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — In the locker room after its surprise win at Minnesota last week, Maryland held a spirited celebration that centered upon a player who started the season as a third-string quarterback.
Timely bye weeks could help No. 8 Michigan and Purdue get back to full strength. Both of their starting quarterbacks could be ready to play next week.
Maryland, on the other hand, faces another week of breaking in a new starter.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — The Maryland football team is turning to its third starting quarterback of the season.
Sophomore Max Bortenschlager will make his second career start in place of freshman Kasim Hill when the Terrapins (2-1) visit Minnesota Saturday in the Big Ten opener for both teams Coach DJ Durkin said Tuesday that Hill will miss the rest of the season with a torn right anterior cruciate ligament suffered in Saturday's 38-10 loss to Central Florida.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Central Florida coach Scott Frost watched in horror as Maryland quarterback Kasim Hill twisted in agony on the field.
Though the first-quarter injury contributed heavily to the Knights' 38-10 upset of the Terrapins on Saturday, the scene near the UCF sideline was tough to watch.
"I'm brokenhearted for them and Kasim," Frost said. "Someone going down on the football field, that's not what you want to see."
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — With a new head coach and the promise that the program is already on the rebound with its $10 million locker room, big wins in recruiting for the future and some good looking talent for the present, all eyes were on Texas and Tom Herman.
Then Maryland spoiled the Longhorns unveiling — in emphatic fashion.
COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — There were several reasons why Tyrrell Pigrome won the starting quarterback job at Maryland, not the least of which are his experience, running ability and leadership skills.
Coach DJ Durkin took all that under consideration, then decided that the 5-foot-11 sophomore should be the one to guide the offense against No. 23 Texas in Saturday's season opener.
