ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The last time Dennis Franchione brought a team to Maryland, the school was a national powerhouse and featured one of the finest running backs in the country.
It was 2000, and Franchione was head coach at Texas Christian University. Led by eventual Doak Walker Award winner LaDainian Tomlinson, TCU rolled to a 24-0 victory.
Franchione returns Saturday as head coach of Texas State, which is playing its first season at the Football Bowl Subdivision level. His top running back this time around is Marcus Curry, a transfer from Navy who voluntarily resigned from the academy in 2010 following a variety of off-field issues - including testing positive for marijuana.
Curry, now a fifth-year senior, leads Texas State in yards rushing with 513 yards and has scored nine touchdowns.
