COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) -- Randy Edsall has made several changes to his starting offense in an effort to improve Maryland's ineffective passing game.

Most notably, junior Caleb Rowe will replace Perry Hills at quarterback Saturday against South Florida. Two of Rowe's main targets will be D.J. Moore and Taivon Jacobs, who are slated to make their first college starts.

The lineup shuffle comes in the wake of a 48-27 loss to Bowling Green.

Edsall says, "I didn't think we were getting the things done in order for us to be who we need to be offensively."

Oklahoma State transfer Daxx Garman will be the backup to Rowe and Hills has been dropped to third string.

The defense, meanwhile, is in bounce-back mode after allowing 692 yards and six touchdown passes.
