Maryland: Longhorns score 3 non-offensive TDs, still lose, fans boo

APTOPIX Maryland Texas Football

Texas tried to fight back in the second half, scoring 20 points in the third quarter, but couldn't overcome the 30-14 halftime deficit. Hill also ran for a score.

However, there were negatives, as Maryland saw quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome and cornerback Antwaine Richardson leave the game due to injury. Moore and Taivon Jacobs combined for 10 receptions for 213 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns.

A left-leg injury to Pigrome offered an opening for Texas, but his replacement, true freshman Kasim Hill, came up big in a critical spot, leading a seven-play touchdown drive to open up a 10-point lead on the Longhorns midway through the fourth quarter after they'd forfeited possession on a failed fourth down conversion attempt near midfield. He accounted for both of Texas' first-half touchdowns with a 31-yard interception return and a 65-yard return of a blocked field goal.

Pick sixes, kick and punt return touchdowns are always exciting plays in football, but aren't that out of the ordinary.

Their most egregious error was a blocked field goal of their own returned 71 yards for a touchdown by Maryland's Antoine Brooks early in the second quarter. Longhorns quarterback Shane Buechele had a productive afternoon with 300 passing yards and a touchdown and 21 rushing yards and a score, but too many poor passes soaring high or behind receivers led to near-interceptions and stalled any progress late in the game for a possible comeback. The Terrapins iced the game with a 12-yard Jake Funk touchdown run.

Pigrome finished a five-play, 51-yard drive with a 25-yard touchdown run that was reminiscent of his 24-yard touchdown to beat Central Florida in double-overtime on the road. But if Texas can eliminate some of the concerns before Big 12 play opens up, then the Longhorns still have time to prove they really are a better team now under Herman than they were previously under Charlie Strong.

Here's how to watch and follow Texas vs. Maryland. Texas added a touchdown pass to Collin Johnson late. "That shouldn't be taken away from our offense". Even Connor Williams was flagged for holding - twice, on the same fourth quarter drive. He didn't miss until just under four minutes remained in the second quarter and completed 19 of 20 overall. One wide left, one blocked. Horns fall flat in Tom Herman's debut, 51-41 appeared first on HookEm. After hosting Mountain West foe San José State in a week, the Longhorns travel to USC for a battle pitting two national heavyweights but, as we learned Saturday, only one serious national title contender.
