WATCH: Maryland puts Texas on early upset alert with impressive TD run
It didn’t take long for the Terrapins to put some pressure on No. 23 Texas.
Maryland is taking on the Longhorns at home after knocking them off in Austin last season. Texas is hoping to get a little revenge to begin the season, but it looks like the Terrapins have other ideas in mind.
Maryland was marching down the field on the first drive of the game when freshman WR Jeshaun Jones took a handoff around the left side. The blocking was good for the speedster, and he made one nice cutback to find the open lane to the end zone.
The Big Ten Network shared the video of the 28-yard touchdown for Maryland’s first points of the season:
It upset ranked Texas in the 2017 opener.
