Halftime in the Desert

January 5, 2009 - Seth Staskey

It appeared as if Texas was going to take the lead into the lockerroom at halftime, but once again the Buckeyes' defense made a play when it was most needed.

Colt McCoy had been lights out in the first half, completing 20-of-26 passes for 198 yards, but his 27th attempt was one of the biggest plays of the football games thus far. OSU defensive back Anderson Russell stepped in front of Jordan Shipley and picked off the pass at the 1-yard line with inside of 5 seconds to go before the half.

Earlier in the half, Ohio State was the beneficiary of a Texas penalty, which pushed back a drive and resulted in the lone Texas points a 27-yard field goal.

Another drive ended when Thaddeus Gibson recorded a sack of McCoy, the defense's second of the game.

It's been low scoring, but definitely entertaining thus far.

In case you were watching talking heads at halftime analyse this game, TBDBITL just put on heck of a performance. I couldn't hear it behind glass, but it looked impressive and there were even fireworks shot at the end.
