Maryland has just named Perry Hills as its starting QB. The Terps' passing game struggled last year -- when Hills started eight games -- but Hills can at least make plays with his feet and adds another dimension to the offense.

Brian Bennett ESPN Staff Writer 

Maryland has named Perry Hills its starting quarterback. Hills started eight games last season, completing 50 percent of his passes and throwing eight TDs and 13 interceptions. He also had three 100-yard rushing games, and the senior's mobility will help him run a hurry-up spread offense.

Washington is going through its second full scrimmage this morning. Since the Huskies open with Rutgers at 11 am PT on 9/3, coaches decided to mirror this scrimmage off that game. The team stayed in a hotel last night, had a team dinner and went through a 6:30 am wake up today in preparation. Coaches are hoping this mock game situation helps to adjust any kind of "body clock" issues (to borrow Stanford's term) the team could have next Saturday.

LSU scrimmaged at Tiger Stadium on Tuesday evening, looking ahead toward its Sept. 3 opener against Wisconsin. Tigers coach Les Miles said QB Brandon Harris went 10-for-15 for 133 yards and two TDs. The Tigers ran for 288 yards in the scrimmage and passed for 220. Miles said safety Jamal Adams intercepted a pass and dropped another INT and that cornerback Donte Jackson returned an interception for a touchdown. Star running back Leonard Fournette did not participate in the scrimmage after injuring his ankle last week. However, Miles said Fournette has resumed running and predicted that "the next time we take the field, my guess is he'll be practicing."

Don't expect a QB announcement from Mark Helfrich before the Ducks' final fall scrimmage on Thursday. He said following the scrimmage he'll sit down with all the coaches as they develop their depth chart for the UC-Davis game week. All signs point to grad transfer Dakota Prukop being named the starter, but will be interesting to see where Justin Herbert falls in the pecking order. Several have been very impressed with the 6-foot-6 true freshman.

Texas LB Malik Jefferson, the Big 12 preseason Defensive Player of the Year, was asked to describe where his game is at entering his sophomore year. The word he chose: wiser. He feels all caught up to the speed and pressures of the college game now. Will he get to pass rush more this year? "We'll see," Jefferson said. "You know we like to blitz."

UCLA held Day 2 of its Texas A&M prep on Tuesday, but while coach Jim Mora wasn't ready to talking A&M specifics, he made it clear the excitement is growing in anticipation of the Sept. 3 opener. "Going to SEC country in front of 100,000-plus people on a hot Saturday afternoon and show that we're capable of competing and playing in that environment and thriving," he said.
