The Terps take on No. 23 Texas at noon on FS1.

NCAA Football: Maryland at Texas John Gutierrez-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland football opens its season Saturday at noon against the No. 23 Texas Longhorns, with the Terps looking to pull off a Week 1 upset for the second consecutive year.

Saturday’s game will be Maryland interim coach Matt Canada’s debut. Maryland put up 51 points in last year’s game vs. Texas en route to a 51-41 upset victory, but lost starting quarterback Tyrrell Pigrome to a torn ACL. Pigrome and redshirt freshman Kasim Hill, who tore his ACL vs. UCF on Sept. 23, are listed as co-starters on the depth chart.

The Longhorns are one of five ranked teams that the Terps will face, which makes this game the first of many upset opportunities that Maryland football will have this season.

The numbers

Maryland: 0-0 (0-0 Big Ten), 4-8 last season

Texas: 0-0 (0-0 Big 12), 7-6 last season

All-time series: Texas leads 3-1

Odds: Maryland is a 13.5-point underdog
