ACU Drive No. 6
Richardson runs up the middle to the 47. Gale's pass on second down is incomplete in the left flat. On third and 5, Gale passes complete to Kendrick Johnson – who has a greatly expanded role in the offense tonight – for a first down at the 48 of ACU. On frist down, Richardson jitterbugs up the middle to the TSU 41, a gain of 7. On 2nd and 3, Richardson runs around left end for a first down at the TSU 37. Richardson runs behind tackle Tony Washington on the left side of the line, good for 5 yards at the 32. On 2nd down, Richardson finds tough going, and a gain of only 1. Gale's passis complete to Johnson over the middle, good for a first down at the TSU 24. Richardson dives up the middle on first down, gaining 4 to the 20. On 2nd and 6, Gale passes complete to TE Ben Gibbs for a first down at the Texan 4. On first and goal, Richardson runs off left tackle to the 3. On 2nd down, Gale's pass in the end zone is broken up. ACU calls its second timeout of the half. On third and goal at the 3, in front of a picturesque West Texas sundown scene (you'd be jealous of the view), Gale lofts an alley-oop pass in the end zone to Edmund Gates, who catches it but falls out of bounds. On fourth down, Morgan Lineberry boots his second 20-yard field goal of the game, stretching ACU's lead to 6-0 with 00:50 left in Q2.
