TicketCity Bowl 2012: Houston Strikes First, Leads 7-0

The 2012 TicketCity Bowl is underway at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas this Jan. 2 and Houston is off to a fast start. The Cougars' Case Keenum found wide receiver Patrick Edwards for 40 yards down the near sideline for a touchdown pass on Houston's first drive of the game.

The big scoring pass came on a 3rd-and-13 play and was the biggest pass play the Penn State defense has given up all season.

Keenum threw two passes for almost no yardage on the first drive and threw two incompletions. His two completions were big ones, though, and just minutes into the game, Keenum is already 4-6 for 81 yards and a touchdown.

If the Penn State defense doesn't buckle down soon, the Nittany Lions' chances in this game will take a big hit. The Penn State offense, which just went 3-and-out on its first drive, isn't built to play blow-fot-blow.

With 11:44 left in the first quarter, Houston leads, 7-0.
