TicketCity Bowl 2012: Houston Takes A 10-0 Lead

The Houston offense continues to look sharp early in the TicketCity Bowl at Cotton Bowl stadium in Dallas. Cougars quarterback Case Keenum, fresh off a 40-yard touchdown pass on his first drive, hit Justin Johnson for a big gain of 23 to start his team's second drive, then continued to eat at the Penn State defense all the way down to the Nittany Lions 21-yardline.

The Penn State defense finally got a stop and forced a field goal attempt by Houston's Matt Hogan, but he drilled a 35-yarder to give the Cougars an early 10-0 lead.

Houston is really pushing the pace of the game on offense, hurrying up to the line and snapping the ball quickly to keep things moving. It'll be interesting to see how Penn State responds to the quicker action as the Lions have rarely faced a team that pushes it like Houston.

With 9:12 to play in the first quarter, Houston leads 10-0.
