The Maryland Terrapins engineered one of the biggest upsets of college football Week 1 partly due to the play of starting quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome. Unfortunately, he’ll not play again in 2017 after tearing his ACL in that game.

Before exiting Saturday’s game, Pigrome had totaled 239 yards and three touchdowns — two through the air and one on the ground.

In his stead, freshman Kasim Hill stepped into the game and helped complete the upset over the Longhorns. He completed 3-of-3 passes and totaled 58 yards in limited action late in the contest. He’ll be the man the rest of the way for the Terps.

This is a tough blow for Maryland’s sophomore starting quarterback, and for the offense as a whole. Going forward, it’s going to be up to junior running back Ty Johnson to be the main cog that drives Maryland’s offense.
