TCU opens third with impressive TD
By Jeff Caplan
PASADENA, Calif -- TCU opened the third quarter with a false start penalty, but the Frogs didn't lose their focus and rolled to a six-play, 71-yard touchdown drive to expand their lead to 21-13 with 11:56 to go.
Again, a big play set it up. Quarterback Andy Dalton hit running back Ed Wesley, who took it 33 yards to the Wisconsin 25. On the play, two Badgers' defenders flailed at Wesley and then ran into one another to help spring Wesley free.
Fullback Luke Shivers capped the impressive drive with a 1-yard scoring run.
The pressure is on the Badgers, who have moved the football, but have been able to put the ball in the end zone just once.
