Penn State scores long TD, down 27-14

DALLAS -- Houston decided not to go for it on fourth-and-1 deep in Penn State territory and instead had Matt Hogan kicked a 38-yard field goal to go up 27-7. But the Nittany Lions bounced right back.

Penn State fumbled and it appeared Houston would recover. But several Cougar players tried to pick the ball up instead of fall on it and Penn State was able to get the ball back. The next play, a third-and-long, quarterback Rob Bolden threw a 69-yard TD pass to Justin Brown.

Houston has the ball back and is driving as time is running down in the third quarter.
