Virginia Vs. Maryland: Danny O'Brien Starting At Quarterback For Terps

The Maryland football team has made yet another change at quarterback, as Danny O'Brien will return to the starting lineup when the Terps take on Virginia at Byrd Stadium on Saturday. O'Brien gets the start over C.J. Brown, who has started the last three games.

Both quarterbacks have played in each of the past two weeks in losses to Florida State and Boston College. Brown played in the first quarter against Boston College before being replaced by O'Brien. Brown completed just two of six passes for 14 yards, while O'Brien was 14 of 35 for 165 yards. However, most of those yards came in garbage time in the fourth quarter. For the season, O'Brien has completed 57.4 percent of his passes for 1,275 yards, while Brown has thrown for 375 yards and rushed for 332 yards.

The Terps are looking to stop a four-game losing streak, while Virginia has won three of its past four games.
