Caleb Rowe hooked up with Levern Jacobs for a 27-yard touchdown pass with 2:39 left to pull Maryland within a touchdown of Wisconsin. The Terps recovered the onside kick but was called offside, and the resulting re-kick attempt was recovered by the Badgers, who proceeded to run off the rest of the clock to preserve a 31-24 win on Saturday at College Park.
It’s Maryland’s sixth loss in a row, three under interim coach Mike Locksley.
Rowe was the third player Maryland used under center on the day, following starter Perry Hills and Shane Cockerille. Rowe finished 7 of 18 for 97 yards and led the Terps on their most proficient drive of the day late in the fourth quarter.
Hills was 6 of 16 for 107 yards, with a touchdown pass and an interception. He rushed for minus-14 yards on 11 attempts, which included four sacks. William Likely led the Terps in rushing with 56 yards — on just three carries. Wes Brown had 34 yards on 10 carries with a touchdown. [Read more…]
