2011 Poinsettia Bowl Halftime Score: TCU Ties The Game 10-All

TCU has been sluggish on offense, but their defense has allowed for a slow build with two turnovers against Louisiana Tech. Up 10-3 with under three minutes remaning in the half, Louisiana Tech gave the ball back to the Horned Frogs when Bulldogs quarterback Colby Cameron was picked off by Greg McCoy. TCU drive a short 25-yard field for their first touchdown of the game, from running back Ed Wesley, to tie the game at 10.

TCU has managed only 144 yards total in the first half against the vaunted La. Tech defense and are 0-for-5 on third downs. Both scoring drives for the Horned Frogs have come from Bulldog turnovers in their own territory.

Louisiana Tech, however, is clicking on offense - the Bulldogs have 16 first downs (compared to TCU's seven), won time of possession in the first half by over five minutes and have thrown for 177 yards. Tech's only weak spot thus far has been turning the ball over.
