Latest Wes Brown Items
When the Terrapins hit the field at Byrd Stadium on Saturday, they will do so with sixth-year senior C.J. Brown back under center.

Prince George's County prosecutors are dropping charges against Maryland running back Wes Brown, weeks after he was accused of assaulting a police officer who was questioning him about a shooting, a spokesman said Monday.
Three early fumbles by Maryland quarterback Shawn Petty ended whatever long-shot opportunity of an upset the Terps possessed against No. 10 Clemson in a 45-10 loss on Saturday.

The latest unfolded Saturday at Alumni Stadium as first-time starting quarterback Caleb Rowe was intercepted in the final minute as Boston College escaped with a comeback 20-17 victory.
Maryland lost its starting quarterback late in the first half Saturday. It lost its first conference game a bit later – but not before the Terrapins' most bizarre day of the season.
There was no timeout forthcoming from the Maryland sideline Saturday, not with more than a minute to play and the Terrapins on the precipice of a chance to try a game-tying field goal.
