After one quarter at the TicketCity Bowl at the historic Cotton Bowl in Dallas, all I have is one question:
What happened to the fundamentals that the Wildcats were supposed to be re-learning during their 15 bowl practices?
NU had four penalties for 30 yards in the first quarter: a false start, two offsides and a personal foul.
Texas Tech has controlled the clock 8:25 to 6:35 and Tech leads 10-0.
With Mike Trumpy sitting out, backup quarterback Kain Colter has taken some snaps at running back (and has been out at receiver, too) where he looks pretty good. And Venric Mark has also seen time in the backfield.
But that hasn't transcended into yardage. Tech has 119 yards of total offense to NU's 41.
