Editor's note, by Thomas Kendziora:
Maryland football dropped its second straight game Saturday, as Minnesota came into College Park and beat the Terps 31-10. Maryland's offense was almost nonexistent for the first three quarters, and by the time the Terps woke up in the fourth, it was too late.
Both teams were playing with backup quarterbacks. Minnesota announced on Tuesday that senior Mitch Leidner would miss Saturday's game with a concussion, and that redshirt junior and former walk-on Conor Rhoda would start in his place. Maryland's Perry Hills was a game-time decision with a shoulder injury, and head coach DJ Durkin opted for true freshman Tyrrell Pigrome at the last minute. Neither quarterback was spectacular, but Maryland's four turnovers and six holding penalties held the Terps back significantly.
The game kicked off at noon, and the announced attendance was 41,465. Our own Sammi Silber was there to capture the afternoon in still form.
