Devin Burns earned his first extended playing time at quarterback in Maryland’s 20-18 loss to N.C. State.

Caleb Rowe got his first playing time of any kind.


And the reviews?

“I thought Devin Burns came in and played well in his role as backup,” coach Randy Edsall said. “Caleb came in and executed the two-minute drill with perfection and that’s something we’ve been working on. We had planned if something did happen to perry that we would go with Devin but if we got into a two-minute situation, we were going to go with Caleb.”

Burns rushed for 50 yards and a touchdown and was 3-for-4 for 47 yards passing. Rowe completed both of his passes for 50 yards and rushed for 10 yards on two carries.

So what’s next for Maryland, especially with things “not looking good” with regard to injured starter Perry Hills?

“We’ll just have to sit down and look at the film and decide how to move forward,” Edsall said. “I think we have two guys that we can play with and it’s a credit to those kids for how they prepared and knew they might have to come in and play and they played well, and it’s a credit to the offensive coaches for having those kids ready.”
