UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Maryland starting quarterback Perry Hills left the game Saturday against Penn State late in the first half with an injury.
He took off on a read-option run and was hit hard on the play. Hills came off the field on his power, went into Maryland’s sideline tent for a couple of minutes and then walked to the locker room.
True freshman quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome replaced Hills and ran for a touchdown on the next play, exactly what he did in double overtime against Central Florida earlier this season. After Penn State answered with a touchdown, senior quarterback Caleb Rowe handled the kneel down at the end of the first half.
Hills came out with the team for the second half in full uniform, but Pigrome started the second half for the Terps.
