TCU started the second quarter with a 35-yard field goal to even the score at 3-3 with Portland State. Waymon James led the way on the drive, with two carries totaling 36 yards. A blocking in the back penalty stopped momentum on what looked to be a drive that would result in a touchdown. Head coach Gary Patterson thought about going for it on fourth down, but decided to take the points.
TCU’s defense has not really been able to stop either the run or the pass of Portland State. It’s early in the second quarter, and Portland State has already gotten seven first downs.
