TicketCity Bowl 2012: Rob Bolden Intercepted Again

Penn State takes over down 30-14 in the TicketCity Bowl at Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas and gets a couple of strong rushes by running back Silas Redd. On the second run of the pair, though, Redd limps off after getting hit in the knees. We'll keep an eye on him.

With Redd off the field, Bolden throws up a lame duck on third down, and it's picked off by Houston. He's now 4-16 passing for 127 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.

Back in possession, Houston moves up to midfield with a mix of short passes by quarterback Case Keenum and some runs. The Cougars have slowed their pace considerably, likely trying to run the clock down on Penn State. A holding penalty stalls the drive, though, and Penn State will get a chance to pull the game to within one possession.

Wildcat quarterback Bill Belton picks up a first down with a nice run and a facemask penalty tacked on to pull the Nittany Lions up to midfield. Once again, however, the coaches move away from Belton and the wildcat and give the ball back to Bolden. Not surprisingly, the drive sputters out and Penn State punts.

With 7:19 to play in the game, Penn State still trails Houston, 30-14.
