Game information

Texas Tech played Baylor in Waco, the first time since 2008 that the two did not play one another at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.[10]

The first half of the game was a defensive battle between the two teams. Texas Tech scored only 6 points in the half with two field goals from Trey Wolff while Baylor only scored 3 with a 37-yard field goal from John Mayers. The Red Raiders had 182 yards of offense in the first half while the Bears had 117. Baylor scored the first touchdown of the game for either team on its first drive of the half with a 4-yard run from Charlie Brewer. After trailing for most of the half, the Red Raiders scored a touchdown with 1:37 left in regulation to take a 20–17 lead. The Bears marched down field with Mayers making a 19-yard field goal as time expired to tie the game. Baylor started overtime on offense with Texas Tech on defense. During the drive, center Jake Fruhmorgen appeared to have fumbled the ball on a snap with the ball being recovered by Jaylon Hutchings for the Red Raiders and the play was blown dead quickly. The fumble was overturned as Baylor was penalized for an illegal snap penalty. The call was heavily criticized and the following day the Big 12 announced that the penalty was the wrong call and that Texas Tech should have gained possession.[11][12]

Kansas kicker Liam Jones missed the initial game-winning field goal, with Douglas Coleman III recovering the ball for Texas Tech. Coleman then fumbled the ball, with Kevin Feder recovering it for Kansas at the Texas Tech 14-yard line with 2 seconds left. Jones would make his second attempt, winning the game 37–34 for the Jayhawks. This is the Red Raiders' first loss in Lawrence, first loss to the Jayhawks since October 6, 2001, and second overall loss to the Jayhawks.[13]

Texas Tech's coach Matt Wells praised Jayhawk coach Les Miles after the game: "I think Coach Miles brings credibility to that program. I mean, the job that he obviously did at Oklahoma State and did at LSU speaks for itself. He's had success everywhere he's been. And those kids played hard on Saturday. They really did. They went out and, man, they did. They emptied the tank and had every right to win and deserved to win."[14]

The team would score another touchdown in the quarter, but Trey Wolff missed the extra point attempt, his first miss of the season. Texas Tech's defense held the Horned Frogs scoreless in the 3rd quarter while the offense scored two touchdowns, but failed the two-point conversion after each one, leading 28–27 at the end of the quarter. Neither team scored a touchdown in the final quarter, with Jonathan Song making two field goals for the Horned Frogs and Trey Wolff making a 24-yard attempt. Texas Tech received the ball back with just under 2:30 left to play, but McClane Mannix fumbled on the first play of the drive with TCU recovering it, running out the clock to win the game 33–31.
