Don’t call it a comeback?

After the Texas Longhorns fell behind against the Maryland Terrapins, 24-7, it was shades of 2017. Unnecessary penalties, blown assignments and a botch punt paved the way for the Terps to take a commanding early lead, but the Horns seemingly found their stride in the second quarter.

Keaontay Ingram’s first career touchdown run pulled Texas within 10, and a few possessions later, the Longhorns pulled within eight after forcing a safety.

With a short field and limited time to work with, Sam Ehlinger marched the Longhorns down the field for their second touchdown strike of the second quarter courtesy of a 22-yard connection to Collin Johnson with just seconds remaining before the half.

After a Kyle Porter two-yard touchdown run gave Texas its first lead of the game, 29-24, and Maryland responded with a touchdown run of its own the following drive, the game was placed on a weather delay.

An hour later, the game was still delayed, with a lightning strike in the area pushing a start time back another 30 minutes as of 3:10 p.m. Central:

And, indeed, the teams are expected to retake the field at 3:30 and tentatively resume play at 3:40.

14:25 remains in the fourth quarter once the teams are able to return to the field.

This is your second half gamethread.
