Maryland lost a fourth quarterback to a season-ending injury.

Coach Randy Edsall said Sunday that Caleb Rowe has a torn ACL. The injury occurred in Saturday's 20-17 loss to Boston College. It was the first start for the true freshman.

Quarterback C.J. Brown (Seneca Valley) tore an ACL in August and was replaced by Perry Hills (Central Catholic), who tore an ACL against N.C. State on Oct. 20. Devin Burns broke his foot in that game and also is out for the year.

Converted linebacker Shawn Petty or former tight end Brian McMahon will start for Maryland (4-4, 2-2 ACC) on Saturday against Georgia Tech.

Around the nation

Kansas State and Notre Dame each moved up a spot in the Associated Press poll. Alabama is No. 1 for the ninth straight week; Oregon is No. 2. Florida's 17-9 loss to Georgia dropped the Gators five spots to No. 8. ... Idaho said two players — starting quarterback Dominique Blackman and linebacker Conrad Scheidt — were kicked off the team for violating team rules, and tight end Taylor Elmo was suspended for violating athletic department policy.
