Maryland's C.J. Brown ran for one touchdown and threw for another Saturday, and backup Caleb Rowe threw two more TD passes in the second half to lead the Terrapins past Indiana 37-15.

The Terrapins (4-1, 1-0 Big Ten) have won two straight overall and five in a row on the road -- including their inaugural Big Ten game.

Indiana (2-2, 0-1) was chasing its second straight conference-opening win — something the Hoosiers haven't achieved since 1990-91.

Brown finished 10 of 15 for 163 yards but did not play in the second half after appearing to injure his left wrist. His 5-yard TD run broke a 3-3 tie and his 29-yard TD pass to Stefon Diggs gave the Terrapins a 17-6 lead midway through the second quarter.

Rowe sealed it with a 36-yard TD pass to Brandon Ross midway through the third quarter.
