1st quarter

Texas Tech quarterback Baker Mayfield passed for 137 yards, including a 50-yarder to Kenny Williams for a touchdown, as the Red Raiders built a 10-0 lead. Tech outgained TCU 150 to 52 yards.

2nd quarter

TCU never got deeper than the Tech 40-yard line as two drives end on a three-and-out. Texas Tech’s J.J. Gaines picked off a Trevone Boykin pass and returned it to the TCU 36. But Tech’s drive stalled, thanks to three penalties, two for holding and one for delay of game. Boykin had 39 yards on eight carries, but running back B.J. Catalon had one carry for a loss of a yard.

3rd quarter

TCU’s best drive of the night ended when Tech defensive lineman Jackson Richards, a Southlake Carroll grad, picked off a pass at the Tech 28 and returned it 20 yards. TCU held Tech to a three-and-out on two of its three drives during the quarter.

4th quarter

B.J. Catalon’s 17-yard run capped a 69-yard touchdown drive. Texas Tech running back DeAndre Washington’s 49-yard touchdown reception was overturned when a replay shows that he dropped the ball just as he crossed into the end zone. A 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct put Tech at the 15 but the Red Raiders scored four plays later on Davis Webb’s 19-yard pass to Bradley Marquez.

How they fared

Offense: TCU gained 401 yards but was only 3 of 16 on third-down conversions. Its opening drive of the second quarter stalled on downs at the TCU 44. Five of its six first-half drives ended in a punt; the other an interception.

Defense: TCU held Tech to 336 yards, but 99 of them came on two pass plays — Williams’ 50-yard TD in the first quarter and DeAndre Washington’s 49-yard catch and run to the goal line in the fourth. Three Tech drives went for negative yardage and four ended on turnovers.

Special teams: Brandon Carter’s 58-yard punt return was called back on a clipping penalty and his 69-yard punt return for a TD was voided after the officials say he made a fair catch signal.

Players of the game

Trevone Boykin, TCU: The sophomore quarterback passed for 194 yards on 22 of 36 passing and rushed for 101 on 20 carries.

Kenny Williams, Texas Tech: The junior running back put Tech up 7-0 on a 50-yard touchdown reception just over a minute into the game.

Jackson Richards, Texas Tech: The junior defensive lineman from Southlake Carroll killed a Frogs drive late in the third quarter when he intercepted a pass at the Texas Tech 28 and returned it 20 yards.

Davis Webb, Texas Tech: The freshman quarterback replaced Baker Mayfield in the fourth quarter and was 3 of 4 for 77 yards and a touchdown.
