Maryland lost at Rutgers, 31-24, Nov. 4 and fell to 4-5 on the season. Here are four observations on the loss:
1. Maryland is down to its fifth-string quarterback.
Terps sophomore quarterback Max Bortenschlager was injured early in the fourth quarter with the game tied at 24. Facing a third-and-3 from Maryland's own 32-yard line, Bortenschlager tried to run for the first down, but was met with a helmet-to-helmet collision and stopped short of the line to gain.
