(LUBBOCK, Texas) — Texas Tech backup quarterback Davis Webb hit Bradley Marquez with a 19-yard touchdown pass with 3:48 remaining to break a 10-10 tie, and the Red Raiders (3-0, 1-0 Big 12) stunned No. 24 TCU 20-10 on Thursday night.
Webb entered the game for Baker Mayfield, after the freshman walk-on left the game in the fourth quarter with an apparent left leg injury.
“It was a beautiful ball from Davis Webb,” Marquez said. “Those kinds of balls you don’t drop.”
Webb finished the game 3 for 4 with 77 yards and a touchdown.
“That’s about as ugly as you can win, but we’ll take it,” Kingsbury said. “Pretty bizarre, but I thought our kids’ effort was incredible the entire time. Played their hearts out and found a way to win an ugly game.”
TCU (1-2, 0-1) scored its only touchdown of the game with 6:28 remaining when B.J. Catalon punched it in from 17 yards out to tie the game at 10.
Texas Tech kicker Ryan Bustin sealed the win with a 37-yard field goal with 2:43 left.
