Significantly more action is on tap in the third quarter of the 2010 Champs Sports Bowl (read: get ready for some field goals!), where West Virginia enters trailing North Carolina State by a field goal.
James Washington, notably mostly for getting lit up by Sidney Glover in the second quarter, gets the lion-wolf-hybrid's share of carries in the period, beginning with NC State's first possession. It goes nowhere, but when Geno Smith fumbles four plays into West Virginia's answering drive, the 'Pack gets it right back. They won't get far against the stalwart 'Eers defense, but Josh Czajkowski is hitting some nice long bombs with his foot tonight, and boots a 38-yard field goal through.
Jock Sanders returns the answering kickoff 59 yards, but the Mountaineers turn it over on downs. This is the most West Virginia possession of 2010.
State still can't sniff the red zone, but no matter: Czajkowski's got another long kick in him, this one splitting the uprights from 40 yards out. At the end of the third quarter, NC State leads West Virginia, 16-7.
