Last-second Kansas FG snaps Texas Tech's win streak in Lawrence

Posted: Updated:
LAWRENCE, Kansas -

 

On a Saturday full of upsets in the Big 12, Texas Tech looked to remain undefeated in Lawrence against a Jayhawks team that almost upset Texas in Austin, one week earlier. The Jayhawks proved they're a different team with a 37-34 win over the Red Raiders.

The Red Raiders got on the board first. Matt Wells decided to go for it on fourth and goal and it was SaRodorick Thompson who punched in the score. 

Trey Wolff nailed a 24 yard field goal for the Red Raiders to go up 10-0, early in the 2nd quarter. Then five minutes later, Jett Duffey found McLane Mannix at the back of the end zone, Texas Tech up 17-0.

Kansas quarterback, Carter Stanley found rhythm with his wide receiver, Stephon Robinson. The two connected for a big gain that set up a one yard touchdown to put the Jayhawks on the board. Then Robinson closed the gap with a 48 yard touchdown to make it 17-14 at halftime.

Kansas capitalized on explosives during the game. It was tied at 27-all early in the fourth quarter. Then Duffey connected with Dalton Rigdon for a 48 yard go-ahead touchdown. That was matched by Kansas to make it a 34-34 game.

Then chaos began. With 13 seconds on the clock, Kansas would attempt a field goal. The kicker, Liam Jones, was iced and the Red Raiders blocked his second attempt. Texas Tech recovered the block but fumbled on the attempted return, turning the ball back over to the Jayhawks.

Jones had redemption with one second left on the clock and nailed the next FG try for the Kansas win.

The Jayhawks snapped Texas Tech's 12-game win over Kansas. Les Miles wins his first Big 12 game of the season.

 

The Red Raiders enter another bye week. They travel to WVU for a game on November 9th.
