On Maryland’s next offensive possession, starting quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome had to be helped off the field after twisting his knee on a run. Pigrome was 9 of 12 passing for 175 yards and two touchdowns and ran 11 times for 64 yards and a touchdown. He was replaced by freshman Kasim Hill.
Maryland led early the fourth quarter 37-34.
