A little bit of historical charting as the afternoon moves along focuses on Maryland quarterbacks leading the team in rushing.

C.J. Brown did so yesterday, rushing for 29 yards in a 38-7 loss to Temple. It’s only the ninth time since 1997 a quarterback paced the Terps on the ground and the first since Jamarr Robinson’s 129-yard day against Virginia Tech two years ago.

Brown managed to pull off the feat despite having only two carries. None of the last eight Maryland QBs to lead the team in rushing had fewer than nine rushing attempts and only one had less yardage than Brown.
