Turnovers Hurt Texas Tech in Loss at Oklahoma

Three turnovers and two stops on 4th Down hurt the Red Raiders in #10 Texas Tech’s (7-1, 4-1) 38-30 loss to #15 Oklahoma (7-1, 4-1) on Saturday.

Texas Tech got out to a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter after a Kenny Williams halfback pass to Eric Ward.

Oklahoma then took advantage of two Texas Tech turnovers as they strung together 21 consecutive points across the last half of the second and beginning of the third quarters.

Down 21-7, Texas Tech then went on their own scoring run of 17-0 to take a 24-21 lead with 3:08 left in the third quarter.  The key plays in a five minute span was Tech’s defense forcing a 3-and-out on Oklahoma at the 7:20 mark to get the ball back and then converting a surprise onside kick which led to a Jakeem Grant 17 yard touchdown reception from Davis Webb.

However, the 24-21 lead didn’t last for long as Oklahoma used their strong running game to retake the lead less than three minutes later.  Lacoltan Bester’s 35 yard touchdown run put the Sooners up for good with 33 seconds left in the third quarter.

Next Saturday, Texas Tech is back at home with a game against Oklahoma State. Kickoff is at 6 o’clock at Jones AT&T Stadium.
