Maryland will be left to build on its season-opening triumph over Texas without quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome.

The sophomore suffered a torn ACL Saturday and will miss the rest of the season, coach DJ Durkin told reporters Tuesday (via the Baltimore Sun).

Pigrome's first pass attempt against the Longhorns was intercepted and returned for a touchdown, but from that point until his injury on the final play of the third quarter, he was a revelation: 8 of 11 passing for 175 yards and two touchdowns, plus 64 yards and another score on the ground.

Backup Kasim Hill took over to start the fourth quarter and finished off a 51-41 win while collecting a rushing touchdown of his own. The freshman figures to be the starter going forward as the Terps look ahead to their home opener this weekend against Towson.
