Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said he's still uncertain of the timetable for QB Alan Bowman's return to game action. "Bowman's [injury] is a rare deal, not a lot of people know the exact timetable...so we're going to be smart and hopefully we'll have an answer by Sunday and we'll make a decision then."

Texas Tech reclaims the Saddle Trophy

Robinson scrambles to keep game alive, throws INT (1:06)
Texas Tech's Duffey erupts for a 38-yard TD (0:59)

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas Tech QBs have long been known for airing it out, not so much what they do with their feet. Jett Duffey's 38-yard go-ahead touchdown run in the fourth quarter vs. TCU is the longest by a Red Raider quarterback in the last 15 seasons.

TCU QB Shawn Robinson having some success throwing the ball downfield tonight, going 8-of-15 passing for 165 yards and two touchdowns (with no interceptions) on pass attempts of 11 or more yards downfield. His eight completions so far of that distance are the most he's had in a game this season.

In case you're wondering, and even if you're not, the last time Texas Tech held a Big 12 team to fewer than 10 points was a 38-7 defeat of Baylor in the 10th game of 2007. Since then, the Red Raiders have allowed 40 points or more in a conference game 42 times.

Jett Duffey found better downfield success in the third quarter than he did in the first half, completing 3-of-4 pass attempts of more than 10 yards downfield (he was 0-for-2 in that area in the first half). That includes a 62-yard TD pass to Ja'Deion High that has the Red Raiders clinging to a 10-7 lead over TCU.

Texas Tech turns back to Jett Duffey at QB. McLane Carter only came in for one drive.

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury made a QB change at halftime. McLane Carter starts the second half in place of Jett Duffey. Carter won the preseason QB competition and started the Red Raiders' season-opening loss to Ole Miss, but left that game with an injury. This is his first action since Week 1.

Some underwhelming quarterback play tonight in Fort Worth as TCU leads Texas Tech 7-3 at halftime. The Red Raiders' three points are the fewest they've had in the first half in the last five seasons.

Texas Tech throws INT in TCU territory (0:34)
TCU turns it over again (0:47)

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

TCU has committed two turnovers in the first two quarters tonight. That puts the Horned Frogs at minus-9 in turnover margin for the season, tied for third-worst in the FBS. It's TCU's fifth consecutive game with multiple turnovers.

Robinson airs a 20-yard TD to Reagor (0:28)

This is what Texas Tech and TCU are playing for tonight: the Saddle Trophy. It was a tradition from 1961-70 before it disappeared. The trophy tradition was renewed in 2017.

Texas Tech's interception stalls TCU's scoring drive (0:31)

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

TCU with a sloppy start so far vs. Texas Tech. The Horned Frogs with four penalties on their first two drives and on their second offensive possession, they fumbled twice (recovered both) and threw an interception in the end zone.

TCU recovers own fumble for 29-yard gain (0:37)

Texas Tech is without its starting center, Paul Stawarz, tonight vs. TCU because of an undisclosed injury. Bailey Smith, a junior, is starting in his place.

Sam Khan Jr. ESPN Staff Writer 

TCU starting quarterback Shawn Robinson, who suffered an apparent shoulder injury vs. Iowa State, is getting the nod for the Horned Frogs tonight and is behind center for the team's first offensive possession. Gary Patterson said this week Robinson would play, just not to what extent.
