Mean Green vs. Arkansas State: Second half

Mean Green vs. Arkansas State: Second half

October 09
17:50 2010

Both teams are back out on the field for the start of the second half. Arkansas State will receive the ball to start the half, with the Red Wolves up five going into the final 30 minutes. I’m going to say UNT throws the ball less than nine times in the half. Give me your guess in the comments section, along with anything else you want to throw out there. I’m listening.

14:49 Q3: A block-in-the-back brings a big kick-off return all the way back to the ASU 10. 1st-and-10.

12:17 Q3: UNT’s defense does a good job of containing ASU’s offense. It forces a punt, giving the ball to the Mean Green at the 15. 1st-and-10.

11:16 Q3: Here we go again. Chaise Baine takes a good lick after a five-yard gain, and he’s still on the field. This is surreal at this point. I see Riley Dodge trotting out on the field, with a cast on his broken wrist. It’s starting to get comical.

10:28 Q3: Will Atterberry delivers a beautiful 70-yard punt, forcing ASU to start the drive at its own 8-yard line. Baine is still getting looked at. 1st-and-10.

8:10 Q3: ASU completely shanks the punt after its last drive, kicking the ball nine yards. Baine is back in, leading the Mean Green from the ASU 34. 1st-and-10.

6:03 Q3: North Texas did absolutely nothing with the good field position, punting the ball back to the Red Wolves. Atterberry kicks a 13-yard punt. That’s not good. 1st-and-10 at the ASU 25.

4:11 Q3: Kelvin Jackson takes down Ryan Aplin for an eight yard sack. The Red Wolves give the ball to UNT, which will take over from its own 48. 1st-and-10.

2:22 Q3: Baine scrambles, giving him enough time to find Carey for a 19-yard reception, which is good enough for a first down at the A-State 25.

End of Third Quarter: Arkansas State 21, North Texas 16: The Mean Green are still in the ball game, only down six going into the fourth quarter. It is facing a big 3rd-and-8 at the ASU 11. While three points would be nice, UNT desperately needs a touchdown right here.

14:48 Q4: Another drive stalls in the red zone for UNT. It does pick up three points on a 28-yard field goal by Zach Olen. Olen has been doing a great job in the kicker role. I smell an “Athlete of the Week.” Anybody else? Arkansas State 21, North Texas 19.

14:42 Q4: Ryan Aplin and the Red Wolves will get the ball on its own 34. The Red Wolves have been silent in the second half. Chalk that up to the Mean Green defense.

13:09 Q4: A quick three-and-out by ASU gives UNT the ball at its own 18. 1st-and-10.

12:09 Q4: UNT tried to take a shot down the field in its last drive, but that went nowhere. Instead, ASU start a new possession on its 37-yard line.

9:40 Q4: Arkansas State puts some points on the board for the first time in the second half, via a 39-yard field goal by Bobby Zalud. Arkansas State 24, North Texas 19.

9:31 Q4: The Mean Green will start the ensuing drive on its own 15. 1st-and-10.

7:00 Q4: Another three-and-out by UNT. It really needs to start making things happen through the air if it wants to win. ASU gets the ball on its 42. 1st-and-10.

5:59 Q4: It’s getting down to crunch time. UNT takes over on its own 42 after a stagnant drive. 1st-and-10.

4:19 Q4: A big pass interference call negates a Baine pick. 1st-and-10 at the ASU 29.

2:36 Q4: Awful intentional grounding call on Baine on 3rd-and-14. It looked like there was a receiver in the vicinity, but the refs though otherwise. The Mean Green are forced to punt the ball back to ASU. 1st-and-10 for the Red Wolves at the ASU 26.

1:45 Q4: Tick, tick, tick. Ryan Aplin carries the ball to the ASU 40 for a first down, which essentially puts the game on ice. Another tough loss for the Mean Green seems inevitable.
