LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - After an hour weather delay, the Texas Tech football team faced a hungry Arizona State team under the bright lights at the Jones AT&T Stadium.

The Red Raiders started out sluggish, but after falling behind 3-0 to the Sun Devils the Texas Tech offense found their groove.

Nic Shimonek led the way, and found Keke Coutee for a 12-yard touchdown and the Red Raiders go up 7-3. The Tech offense didn't slow down in the first half. The Red Raiders take a 35-17 lead into halftime.

But ASU never gave up, fighting from behind almost the entire game. Early in the 4th the Sun Devils tie it 45-45, when Manny Wilkins connected with N'Keal Harry on the 21-yard touchdown. But with two minutes left in the ballgame Dylan Cantrell gets in for the score.

Texas Tech improves to 2-0 while ASU falls to 1-2. Next up, Texas Tech travels to Houston to take on the Cougars.
