Maryland Football: Terps hang with Wisconsin but come up short

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…]

Maryland Football: Terps suffer another mistake-filled loss, fall to Iowa

Mike Locksley’s second game as head coach of Maryland’s football team didn’t go any better than his first. In fact, things didn’t look much different than the rest, as turnovers, penalties and spotty offensive play continued to plague the Terps in a 31-16 loss to No. 10 Iowa on Saturday in Iowa City.

Perry Hills threw three interceptions — one returned for a touchdown — increasing Maryland’s total for the season to 22, which far and away leads the nation.

All that said, the Terps found themselves in a two-score game midway through the fourth. But their final two possessions saw just six plays ran and two more punts, and Iowa salted away its eighth win against no losses, and moved to 4-0 in the Big 10. [Read more…]
