Maryland tries a LB at QB vs Georgia Tech

Posted: Updated:

By DAVID GINSBURG, AP Sports Writer

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Having exhausted his original depth chart at quarterback, Maryland coach Randy Edsall has turned to true freshman linebacker Shawn Petty to direct the offense Saturday against Georgia Tech.

Wearing No. 31, Petty will be asked to run, pass and hand off the football. His top priority, however, is to simply make it to the end of the game without getting hurt.

The Terrapins (4-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) have already lost four quarterbacks for the season because of injury — C.J. Brown, Perry Hills, Devin Burns and then Caleb Rowe last Saturday in a defeat at Boston College.

Georgia Tech (3-5, 2-3) has dropped three of four — including a 41-17 bashing last week by Brigham Young. It's the first meeting between the teams in College Park since 2007.
