#90: Sacked Out
After scoring just 9 points in the season opener against Fordham, the Lions were determined to show a more potent offense in week two at home against Towson.
But it didn't start out looking good.
Each team had three possessions each with no points as Columbia took over at the Lion 42 for its fourth try on offense with just 1:10 left in the first quarter.
A 13 yard 1st down run by Nick Gerst was negated by a penalty, but QB Sean Brackett answered with a 20 yard run to the Tiger 44 on the ensuing 1st and 16.
But an incomplete pass and a little two yard run by Leon Ivery left Columbia with a 3rd and eight at the Towson 42.
But on that play, Brackett was sacked for an 11 yard loss back to the Lion 47 and the drive was over.
It was the third sack of the game at that point and it left Lion fans wondering if the offense would ever get going.
Of course, it was about to, perhaps in part because all those early sacks served as a wake-up call in the nick of time.
