2011 Poinsettia Bowl: La. Tech Finds The End Zone First, Leads 10-3

An incredible tiptoe catch by Quinton Patton needed an officials review, but Louisiana Tech earned the first touchdown of the 2011 Poinsettia Bowl to take a 10-3 lead over TCU early in the second quarter. 

The Bulldogs recovered from a fumble on its previous drive that allowed TCU to tie the game with a 59-yard drive aided by quarterback Colby Cameron's 14 yard scramble and a 26-yard pass to wideout Taulib Ikharo. Patton's two-yard grab against the very edge of the end zone went to the booth, but the replay official confirmed he got a single foot in bounds.

The Horned Frogs have done little on offense thus far - TCU's Johnny Fobbs forced a fumble from Tech's Hunter Lee on the Frogs' 35-yard-line to kill a 63-yard drive and set up a TCU field goal on the next drive, tying the game at 3.
