Injury-Plagued Maryland Set to Test No. 10 Clemson


COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - An unfathomable rash of injuries has turned a once-promising season into a disaster for Maryland.

The Terrapins have lost four quarterbacks for the season, leaving converted linebacker Shawn Petty at the position heading into an Atlantic Coast Conference matchup Saturday on the road against No. 10 Clemson.

Maryland will be without linebacker Demetrius Hartsfield, who tore his ACL last week and is done for the year.

The Terrapins (4-5, 2-3) have lost three straight and are trying to make the best of the situation with three games to go.

Defensive end A.J. Francis says, "We're not going to fold the rest of the season up. We're not going to down to Death Valley and tell them, 'You guys can have this game.'"

Clemson (8-1, 5-1) is favored by 31½.
