We score a single touchdown in eight quarters against SEC opponents and then against Rice we score a touchdown in our very first drive. We lead 7-0.
And get this — it was a 31-yard run by John Cole. Hey, if you can't catch, you might as well run.
It took six plays, if you don't count the 5-yard penalty we started with:
1. Incomplete pass
2. Jared Hawkins 17-yard run (welcome back, Jared)
3. JHawk for 3 yards
4. Larry to Udom Umoh for 21 yards, for U2's first catch of the season
5. Zac Stacy run for no gain
6. John Cole for 31 yards and a touchdown.
We'll take it. Hopefully we can complete a bunch more passes and the receivers can build confidence.
