Penalties, mistakes haunting Boise State

Posted by Adam Jacobi

Boise State's leading this game, as they have for the vast majority of play tonight. But it's only a 24-17 margin, and Boise State can point directly at the penalties it's been committing as a reason that Oregon State's been hanging around in this game.

Twice, during Oregon State's last touchdown drive, Boise State committed drive-extending penalties after holding Oregon State on 3rd down. First, they sacked Ryan Katz, only to commit a taunting penalty after Katz went down. Later, Katz scrambled for a first down and came up short... except a Boise defender led with his helmet, which is another automatic first down.

The Broncos would come back to score a touchdown on their ensuing possession to push the margin back to 14 points, and they held Oregon State to a three and out. Unfortunately, Boise returner Titus Young fumbled the punt, the Beavers recovered, and Oregon State would score a touchdown a few snaps later. The score's now 31-24, late in the third quarter, and the Broncos only have themselves to blame.

TCU and Oregon State in Dallas dogfight

Posted by Adam Jacobi

Fans expecting a competitive game between TCU and Oregon State should be happy so far, as TCU has roared back from a 7-point deficit to take a 21-14 lead into halftime. Andy Dalton has accounted for two of TCU's three scores--one through the air, one on a nice scramble from five yards out.

Despite the score at the break, the star of the first half is probably Ryan Katz, who has thrown two long scores and has a gorgeous release. It's hard to believe he's a quarterback making his first start against a stout TCU defense, If he keeps up this performance--and it's likely that he will--this is still anybody's ballgame.
