The team is kicking off the 2018 season with a tough matchup against the Texas Longhorns. Unfortunately, the team will be taking the field without McNair. The young OL collapsed during team workouts earlier this year and later passed away as a result of heatstroke.

The Terrapins will hope to secure an early season win against a tough opponent, but the team is also honoring McNair with a helmet sticker bearing No. 79. Maryland on BTN shared a photo of what the helmets will look like:
