Major blow for Maryland now and the rest of the season;https://t.co/GDDgSC23fV pic.twitter.com/fjLZAkvJSc
Maryland will turn to quarterback Lance LeGendre to make his first college start. He has appeared in five games in the last two seasons with seven total pass attempts. LeGendre appeared in two games this season with four pass attempts.
The Terps opened as nine-point favorites this week, but the game is off the board in many places including at DraftKings Sportsbook right now. It appears the early indications are the line might re-open in the range of Maryland -3, but that’s not for sure.
This is the last football game of the season for both teams.
