Maryland will be without its starting quarterback when the Terps take on the Buckeyes this weekend.

Kasim Hill has been sidelined the rest of the season after tearing his ACL during Saturday's loss to Indiana, head coach Matt Canada announced on Tuesday.

Hill finishes his season 84-for-170 with 1,083 yards through the air. He threw for nine touchdowns and four interceptions in his 10 appearances.

In his place, redshirt sophomore Tyrrell Pigrome will get the start. Pigrome has seen action in nine games this season and has completed 17-of-31 passing attempts this year for 195 yards, but he's been most effective in the running game with 38 carries for 166 yards.

Also missing from Maryland's official depth chart was starting running back Ty Johnson, who also suffered an injury against Indiana. Redshirt freshman Anthony McFarland will likely get the start in his place and is actually the team's leading rusher.
