FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Jett Duffey scored on a 38-yard quarterback draw with seven minutes left, holding on to the ball just long enough for the go-ahead score in Texas Tech's 17-14 victory over TCU on Thursday night.
  
Duffey took off on the first play after a punt, and the touchdown stood after a replay review. The ball rolled forward through the end zone after defender Trevon Moehrig-Woodard knocked it loose right at the goal line.
  
It was the third time the Red Raiders (4-2, 2-1 Big 12) won in their last four trips to Fort Worth. They needed multiple overtimes in each of the previous two wins.
  
TCU (3-3, 1-2) had its final drive ended when Shawn Robinson desperately scrambled from one side of the field to the other on fourth-and-1 before the ball appeared to slip out of his hands and was intercepted by Adrian Frye in the final minute.
  
Duffey finished 13-of-24 passing for 190 yards, including a 62-yard touchdown in the third quarter to Ja'Deion High, who was wide open at the 30 and ran the rest of the way. Duffey also had 16 carries for 83 yards.
  
Robinson was 26-of-45 passing for 290 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
  
The Frogs were up 14-10 when KaVontae Turpin streaked past a defender and into the end zone to make a 31-yard TD catch with 11 minutes left. Turpin had six catches for 120 yards.
  
THE TAKEAWAY
  
Texas Tech: The Red Raiders were held to 353 total yards, well below their national-best average of 591 yards a game. They had also scored 48 points a game. ... Duffey, the third quarterback to play for Tech this season, was inconsistent at times but made enough big plays. His start came with the other two quarterbacks still hurt.
  
TCU: The Horned Frogs had their eight-game home winning streak snapped. They had 411 total yards, but couldn't overcome mistakes. They had three turnovers, including an interception in the end zone, and had a missed field goal attempt.
  
UP NEXT
  
Texas Tech is home Oct. 20 against Kansas.
  
TCU plays its third consecutive home game Oct. 20 against No. 11 Oklahoma.
