Western Kentucky vs. Memphis in the Boca Raton Bowl is one of the most exciting games of bowl season on paper. In the first quarter, we already have a touchdown by WKU tackle Forrest Lamp.

Lamp was named a third-team All-American by the AP, and during tonight's bowl game, he showed his versatility as a skill guy, if only for a moment. On 2nd & 7 from the Memphis 9-yard line, quarterback Mike White found Lamp with a screen, after drawing the defense to the right with a play action fake and roll-out. Lamp rumbled ahead for an easy touchdown.

The play was ruled legal, as White threw a backwards pass to Lamp, so it is technically a rushing touchdown for the offensive tackle. Either way, we think he and the Hilltoppers will take it.

Western Kentucky leads 14-10 at the end of the first quarter, after that trick play touchdown. The over/under for this one was 80 entering the game, so expect plenty more points down the stretch here.
