LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - After competing in most of their Big 12 conference games this season, Texas Tech was blown out for the first time this season at the hands of the 24th-ranked Oklahoma Sooners, losing 62-28 on Halloween night.
The Red Raiders came into the game with a lot of confidence after their win against West Virginia. It showed in their first drive, which they ran to perfection. Quarterback Henry Colombi, making his second career start, orchestrated a seven-play, 75-yard drive that was capped off with a five-yard touchdown run by Sarodorick Thompson. But it was all downhill from there.
Texas Tech then gave up 42 unanswered points, until the 6:15 mark in the second quarter, when tight end Travis Koontz scored on a 75-yard catch and run touchdown. The Sooners scored 21 points in the first quarter, then 27 points in the second. Combined with a bad performance by the defense, was a number of turnovers by the offense. Tre Norwood was able to pick off two of Colombi’s passes that were tipped by his receivers, and Colombi had a fumble recovered by Isaiah Thomas.
Next the Red Raiders will visit TCU in Fort Worth, on Nov. 7, at 2:30 p.m. The broadcast will be carried on Fox Sports 1.
