TCU opens second half strong

PASADENA, Calif. -- TCU absolutely needed a good drive to open the second half after being stonewalled in the second quarter.

They got it -- thanks to some help from the officials. A pass-interference call on a pass that looked like it was uncatchable helped the Horned Frogs avoid a third-and-long right out of the chute. But from there, TCU took care of business and finally got Ed Wesley and Matthew Tucker involved.

Wesley was the only tailback to touch the ball in the first half, but he had a big 33-yard tackle-breaking catch, while Tucker added a nice run near the goal line. The touchdown made it 21-13 and puts the pressure back on Wisconsin.

Now we get to see what second-half defensive adjustments Gary Patterson made. Regardless, we have seen through this first two-quarters-and-change that TCU definitely belongs on this stage.
