Texas, 51-41, to open 2017 season

Former Clay-Chalkville High School standout Tyrrell Pigrome passed for two touchdowns and ran for another before leaving with an injury as Maryland stunned No. 23 Texas 51-41 Saturday.

The Longhorns scored three non-offensive touchdowns: an interception return and blocked kick return by Holton Hill and a 91-yard punt return by Reggie Hemphill-Mapps. No update yet on Pigrome's status. He was spelled by true freshman Kasim Hill, who completed a crucial 40-yard pass to junior wide receiver DJ Moore on third and 19 midway through the fourth quarter.

Maryland came into Darrell K. Royal-Memorial Stadium as a almost three-touchdown underdog and left with a 51-41 win over No. 23 Texas. One thing you can say about a game like this from Texas is you have a laundry list of items you now know can be addressed. Moore and Taivon Jacobs combined for 10 receptions for 213 receiving yards and two receiving touchdowns. Texas hurt itself with over 100 yards in penalties as well.

Can't Wait To Get To Melwood - Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Seals Liverpool Move
The FC crew break down Arsenal's inability to add big players and sell unhappy stars during the summer transfer window. Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was also wanted by Chelsea , has penned a five-year contract with the Merseyside club.

"It's frustrating, losing the season opener", said Buechele, who finished 34 of 52 passing for 375 yards and two touchdowns with one interception. Hill got the Terps moving, but a drive stalled and senior Adam Greene missed a 50-yard field-goal attempt.

While some wacky things happened at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday, including two blocked field goals being returned for touchdowns, the strangest thing that occurred was what the Terps accomplished. The play was UT's first score off a blocked field goal since 2002.

Maryland, which entered as a three-touchdown underdog, earned its first victory over a ranked opponent since 2010, and its first such win on the road since 2008.

Danny Drinkwater hands in Leicester City transfer request
The Italian is seeking at least three new additions with Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Drinkwater among his targets. Tiemoue Bakayoko is not scared of Chelsea signing Danny Drinkwater as he believes competition for places is healthy.

So the Tom Herman run in Austin has some work to do. Texas, down 37-34, made a decision to go for it on fourth-and-2 at the Terrapins' 48. There were plenty of other situations, including Texas going 0-4 on fourth downs in the game. But Herman said there was no sign of doubt or here-we-go-again from his team after the loss. "I've never seen us give up so many rush yards", Herman said. "We responded in the right mental and attitudinal way but the execution and the self-inflicted wounds are things that are hard to recover from, if not impossible".

Maryland football is 1-0 and it was a total team effort. Overreacting to this loss would be unwise, because the college football season is a marathon and not a sprint, but a game like this may be just what the doctor ordered for Herman and his staff. Texas now has a checklist of all of the weaknesses that were exposed in Week 1 by Maryland.
