GAME REPORTS AND COMMENTS
Trent was back behind center for the trip to the Bayou and led the Bucs to their first touchdown in eight quarters with an early strike to Jacquez Green. He followed it up with two more scoring passes and Mike Alstott rumbled for over 100 yards as the Bucs won easily.

"We've been not making the plays, but today we made some, and look what happens, " Dilfer said. "We got that big play early and more than anything else, I think guys were just happy to see us get it in the end zone."
