TCU answers with key third downs
By Jeff Caplan
PASADENA, Calif. -- TCU quarterback Andy Dalton led a poised, 10-play, 77-yard touchdown drive to push the Horned Frogs in front of Wisconsin, 7-3 after one possession for both offenses.
Dalton was 4-of-6 on the drive and he completed two third-down passes to Jimmy Young, one for 14 yards on third-and-10 and the second for 11 yards on third-and-10. The latter came after a motion penalty moved the ball back from the Wisconsin 32 to the 37.
The touchdown came on a 23-yard completion to senior Bart Johnson, who extended his consecutive game streak with a catch to 35.
