LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - For the third time this season, the Red Raiders had a different starting quarterback as Jett Duffey got the call.
After some first half struggles, Duffey had a big 4th quarter touchdown run to lead Texas Tech to a 17-14 win over TCU Thursday night in Fort Worth.
Duffey and the Red Raider sputtered in the first half scoring only three points. Tech had 124 yards of total offense and only 40 passing yards.
TCU scored the lone touchdown in the first half as Shawn Robinson threw a TD pass to Jalen Reagor, the son of former Red Raider and NFL player Monate Reagor.
Trailing 7-3 at the half, Texas Tech turned to QB McLane Carter to start the third quarter, but he only played one series before leaving with an apparent injury.
Duffey came back in and he would find Ja’Deion High for a 62 yard touchdown to give the Red Raiders the 10-7 lead in the third.
It was the Red Raider defense that kept them in the game causing three turnovers and forcing TCU to punt 7 times.
TCU would take the lead in the 4th as Shawn Robinson connected with KaVontae Turpin for a 31 yard touchdown to give the Horned Frogs a 14-10 lead.
With 7:02 to play, Jett Duffey with a burst of speed had a huge 38 yard touchdown run to give Tech a 17-14 lead.
The Red Raiders have now won 4 straight Big 12 road games as they move to 4-2 overall and 2-1 in the Big 12.
It’s also just the 3rd time in 32 tries that the Red Raiders have rallied from a halftime deficit to win under Kliff Kingsbury.
The Red Raiders next host Kansas Oct. 20 at 2:30 p.m. at Jones AT&T Stadium.
