ACU Drive No. 4
On 1st and 10 at the ACU 29, Mitchell Gale's pass to TE Ben Gibbs is short over the middle. Reggie Brown runs up the middle for 5 to the 29. On third down, Gale passes complete to WR Edmund Gates at the left sideline, and he is pushed out of bounds at the 43, where TSU is flagged (No. 4 of this half) for a personal foul. ACU moves to the TSU 42, where it is 1st and 10. Brown is thrown for a loss at the 44. On 2nd and 12, Gale passes over the head of Gates at the left sideline. On 3rd and 12, Gale passes complete to Raymond Radway at the left sideline, good for a first down at the TSU 23. Brown runs off left tackle, but for no gain. On 2nd and 10, Gale is sacked at the 26. The Texans are blitzing on nearly every play against the redshirt freshman. On third and 13, Gale passes incomplete to Gates at the left sideline, bringing up fourth down. ACU goes for it anyway, and is flagged for a false start and a loss of 5 to the 31. Facing a FG attempt into a stiff breeze, ACU opts to see if Mark Sprague can pin TSU near its goal with a punt. TSU fumbles the catch, and the Wildcats recover at the Texan 9 with 10:23 left in Q2.
