Texas, 51-41, to open 2017 season

Texas nearly imploded in the first half against Maryland, and no one could believe it

"We're our own worst enemy right now", Herman said, later adding, "The execution and just the self-inflicted wounds at just the most inopportune time are things that are hard to recover from, if not impossible". "If we all thought that we were going to come in here and in nine months, sprinkle some fairy dust on this team and think that we've arrived, then we're wrong".

In Norman, Okla., Baker Mayfield passed for 329 yards and three touchdowns in one half of action to help Oklahoma rout UTEP. And there were agonizing special teams errors, too.

The first full Saturday of the 2017 college football season has barely begun, and we're already in the midst of a wild back-and-forth battle of blocked field goal touchdown returns.

Marvell Tell returned an interception 37 yards for a TD with 3:13 to play as USC won its 10th consecutive game despite major trouble from the defending MAC champion Broncos on a brutal 99-degree day at the Coliseum.

"I can't explain it", linebacker Malik Jefferson said. "I think it's a lot of self-inflicted wounds". The Terrapins unleashed 27 unanswered points to grab complete control of the game. The Terrapins had to settled for a 50-yard field goal attempt by Greene, a career-long attempt that he shanked. Rowland lined up for a 44-yard kick, but his low line drive was blocked.

For a while, Hill was the only spark the Longhorns could muster.

With that, the elation over Herman's hiring and enthusiasm about his capacity for restoring Texas to its rightful place atop the Power 5 hierarchy had given way to the sad realization that maybe this is going to be more hard than expected. Quarterback Shane Buechele threw a nice 25-yard strike to wide receiver Armanti Foreman but that was quickly called back due to a holding call. "That's just what hurt our drives". We're still a few weeks removed from the beginning of Big 12 play. "That shouldn't be taken away from our offense". There were plenty of other situations, including Texas going 0-4 on fourth downs in the game.

The running game was the biggest difference, as Maryland rushed for 263 yards on 43 carries with four touchdowns, led by Ty Johnson and his 132 yards and one score on 12 totes.

On offense, the running game was nowhere to be found. It was the same song, just a different verse.

"It turns my stomach", Jefferson said. "Every time is got close, out guys responded really, really well". You just hate it because you know you work so hard through offseason, through camp, through everything.

This looked like the start of a new era for the Longhorns on the very first drive.
