One year later, those same Maryland Terrapins — picked to finish near the bottom of the Big Ten East division — forced three consecutive turnovers in the final seven minutes to capture a 34-29 win. Things were supposed to be different in coach Tom Herman’s second season, but they weren’t.  At least not on Saturday at FedEx Field. Just like last season, UT’s No. 23 preseason ranking will be gone when the poll is updated before week two. “A lot of people are gonna want to say this feels a lot like last year.

Texas finds mixed results in the backfield as Tre Watson, Keaontay Ingram make their debuts

LANDOVER, Md. — Texas provided some answers about its running game in Saturday’s 34-29 season-opening loss to Maryland. Enough questions still remain, though.
