Texas Tech’s defense delivered as well forcing five turnovers (three interceptions and two fumbles)
T.J. Vasher had 110 yards receiving with one touchdown and one two-point conversion.
Oklahoma State was a 10 point favorite, but the Red Raiders jumped out to an early 20-0 lead and held off a late rally by the Cowboys.
