The return of Jesse Aniebonam and transfer of Bryan Cowart will be well-received for a Maryland defensive line that ranked toward the bottom of the Big Ten in sacks last season.
Although Maryland left Austin with a win Saturday evening, they lost both Tyrrell Pigrome and Jesse Aniebonam to injury, head coach DJ Durkin announced.
The team was without its two starting offensive tackles, as well as two running backs, in a 35-14 loss to Temple in College Park.
Maryland drops its first game of the season and heads into conference play with a 2-1 record.
The final score underscores what was an extremely sloppy first half.
After a tumultuous summer, the Maryland Terrapins head to Landover, Maryland, to open their season against the Texas Longhorns at FedEx Field. The team went on the road last year to open its season and stunned No. 23 Texas, 51-41.
The TLB staff gave their input on who they thought would lead the Maryland Terrapins football team this season.
Fans will have to wait until Saturday afternoon to see who lines up under center for the Terps.
Now, rather than being viewed as a liability, the unit acts as the “‘tip of the spear’ for the Maryland offense.”
