Boston College Vs. Maryland: Danny O'Brien Enters Game For C.J. Brown

Facing an 21-3 deficit and a crumbling season, Maryland coach Randy Edsall turned to the quarterback many expected to lead the Terps to a promising year. Quarterback Danny O'Brien entered the game in the second quarter, relieving C.J. Brown after an ineffective start.

On his first drive, O'Brien did not look much better than Brown. O'Brien threw a pair of incomplete passes, one of which looked quite ugly coming out of his hand. Neither quarterback has been helped by Maryland receivers, as many catchable passes have been dropped. O'Brien then threw an interception on his second drive.

It will be interesting to see if Edsall sticks with O'Brien. His skillset is different from Browns; O'Brien the traditional drop back passer opposed to Brown's athleticism and speed. Regardless, unless Brown or O'Brien lines up along the defensive line, it may matter very little. Boston College already has more than 160 yards on the ground, with running back Rolandon Finch accounting for 118.
