Texas vs. Maryland, college football

Photo Maryland quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome eluding Texas' Kris Boyd for a score in the first quarter. The result was almost disastrous, as Shane Buechele was sacked at the half yardline.

The Texas defense forced a three-and-out on the ensuing drive as well, but allowed Maryland to tie the score later in the first quarter after the Terrapins capitalized on good field possession following a Shane Buechele interception.

The defense did its part, with Carter dropping Buechele for a 9-yard loss at the 1 and then junior cornerback JC Jackson intercepting Buechele at the Maryland 49.

Pigrome ran 25 yards for Maryland's first touchdown, hit D.J. Moore for a 20-yard score and found Tavion Jacobs on a 46-yard TD pass in the first half.

Any thought of a resurgence at Texas was dispelled by the Longhorns' uneven performance on Saturday against a Maryland team that was picked to finish fifth in the Big 10's Eastern Division.

But with his team clinging to a 37-34 lead late in the third quarter, Pigrome left the game with an apparent leg injury.

The score of 30-14 actually seemed manageable considering how bad things spiraled out of control in the middle of the first quarter and full second quarter.

It was a season opener that checked every box: the country's hottest young coach making his debut with a proud and decorated program; 955 combined yards; a pick-six on the first throw of the game; endless plays of 20 yards or more; a 91-yard punt return for a touchdown; even two blocked field goals returned for touchdowns. But what goes around comes around - Hill returned to the end zone on a 65-yard return of Poona Ford's blocked kick. Despite the preseason polls falling in love with Herman and Texas with a No. 23 ranking in the AP and coaches' polls, Herman now has all the ammunition he needs to truly begin the work needed at Texas.

Before he was injured, Pigrome had a breakout game after starting with a pick-six that put the Terps down early. The Longhorns suffered from numerous same issues that hurt them when they went 5-7 season in 2016, with defensive lapses, turnovers and missed opportunities. Texas scored a late touchdown to make the final look a little more respectable. It's the first time I've felt this sensation since I enrolled there in 2012. Neither play worked and Maryland took over near midfield. On Maryland's second drive, he ran three times before the Terrapins punted.

So the Tom Herman run in Austin has some work to do. More important than next week's game, though, is the upcoming week of practice.

Texas: The Longhorns will try to get Herman's first victory against San Jose State next week. And that will not be acceptable for Texas Football fans.
