TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- South Florida senior quarterback Matt Grothe will miss the rest of the 2009 season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
The school made the announcement Sunday, one day after Grothe was hurt in the second quarter of a 59-0 victory over Charleston Southern.
Grothe had started 41 consecutive games for the Bulls and is the Big East conference career leader in total offense with 10,875 yards.
Redshirt freshmen B.J. Daniels will replace Grothe.
South Florida (3-0) plays at No. 18 Florida State on Saturday.
