Penn State starts its drive down 27-7 against Houston at the TicketCity Bowl in Dallas with a short run by wide receiver and wildcat quarterback Bill Belton. One second down, quarterback Rob Bolden fumbles after taking a pair of shots from Cougars defenders and though Penn State recovers, the result is a loss of 10 yards.
On third down, Bolden comes back strong and throws a 69-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Justin Brown, and just like that, Penn State is still breathing, now trailing 27-14 with 2:38 to play in the third quarter.
Bolden isn't having a good day but any stretch with just three completions on the afternoon. This is still a two possession game, though, and if he can get it together now after that big play, he can still preserve the day for the Nittany Lions. We'll see if he and his offense is equal to the task.
