Maryland quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome out for season with knee injury

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Maryland starting quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome will be lost for the season after tearing his right ACL in the Terrapins' 51-41 upset of Texas last Saturday.

The injury occurred in the third quarter at the end of a run. He was replaced by true freshman Kasim Hill, who will start Saturday against Towson.

Pigrome, a sophomore, won the starting job in an intense competition during the summer. He was 9-for-12 for 175 yards and also ran for 64 yards against the Longhorns.

Hill performed admirably in his first college game. Rushed into action after Pigrome left the field, Hill finished 3-for-3 for 44 yards and ran for 14 yards and a touchdown.

Maryland coach DJ Durkin on Tuesday said of Hill: "This guy is special."
