Northwestern befuddled by a trick play

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Trick plays weren't on Northwestern's menu during the first half in Dallas Saturday.

Texas Tech quarterback Taylor Potts tossed a pass to receiver Austin Zouzalik, who then threw a lateral back to Potts and the quarterback rushed into the end zone. The play gave Texas Tech a 17-6 lead. Tech scored again and the Red Raiders went into halftime with a 24-6 advantage.

Tech's Eric Stephens made Cotton Bowl history to start the third quarter when he rushed for an 86-yard touchdown. It was the second-longest TD in the stadium's history. NU trails Tech 31-9 in the third quarter.
