The second year of the D.J. Durkin era at Maryland got off to a good start Saturday, as the Terrapins defeated No. 23 Texas 51-41 in Austin. But, Maryland came back with a field goal, the Longhorns' offense stalled out in Maryland territory and the Longhorns went to halftime down 30-14. Pigrome atoned for his early mistake with a 25-yard TD run to get the Terrapins on the board, tying the game at seven points apiece. At one point, both passes thrown in the game were picks. Johnson, who scored six touchdowns as a sophomore in 2016, gained 1,004 yards on 110 carries last season.

Maryland football went on to score two more touchdowns on the ground to the Texas Longhorns one, getting the victory. He lay motionless for several minutes before medical responders took him off the field on a stretcher. On Maryland's second drive, he ran three times before the Terrapins punted.

Pigrome left the game late in the third quarter with an apparent leg injury.

It felt like the Longhorns might finally take control after Pigrome left the game in the third and Maryland up 37-34.

On third-and-19, Hill found Moore with a 40-yard pass to the Texas 7. Defensive lineman Jessie Aniebonam got injured as well in the game. On first down from the 21, quarterback Shane Buechele's pass was almost picked off by a wide-open Carter, who bobbled it. Moore his first touchdown of the day with a 20-yard pass.

Instead, Pigome and Maryland recovered quickly.

Then Maryland spoiled the Longhorns' unveiling - in an emphatic fashion. Two plays later, Hill ran three yards for the decisive touchdown. The Terps defense had five sacks against the Longhorns. And, potentially crushing to the fragile psyche of Texas Longhorns football players who have suffered through three straight losing seasons.

Texas, meanwhile, gave up a special teams touchdown and missed field goals.

The Longhorns overcame that, though, when Reggie Hemphill-Mapps had a spectacular 91-yard punt return for a TD in the third quarter.

Tyrrell Pigrome passed for two touchdowns and ran for another before leaving with an injury on Saturday, and Maryland stunned No. 23 Texas, 51-41.

Discipline was also an issue for this Texas Longhorns squad.

After the defense stiffened once Maryland reached the red zone, the Terps had to settle for a 31-yard field goal try by Greene (Broadneck). Blocked kicks returns, however, happen few and far between and can change the momentum of a game at a moment's notice. After averaging 377.8 yards of offense last season, Maryland surpassed that production by the end of the third quarter with 394 total yards.
