ESPN's Paul Finebaum Names 1 "Must-Win" Game For Today

The Tom Herman era at Texas hasn't gotten off to the best start. The Longhorns had a disappointing 2017 season. Year 2 was supposed to be a lot better, but it began with a loss to Maryland.

Texas can start getting things on track today.

The Longhorns are set to host No. 22 USC in one of the biggest games on college football's Week 3 slate.

ESPN college football analyst Paul Finebaum says it's nearly a "must-win" game for Herman and the Longhorns.

"This one is a must-win for Tom Herman," he said today.

Finebaum expanded on those thoughts:

"This is somewhat of a must-win game for Tom Herman, not for his job, he’s been there a year and a half, but he’s got to change the direction of this program," Finebaum said. "Losing again to Maryland, USC coming off a a bad loss .. Hook ‘em horns."

Texas and Maryland are set to kick off at 8 p.m. E.T. on FOX.
