In what could very well end up being the play of the year, the Texas Tech defense literally ripped a touchdown out of the arms of star Texas Longhorns running back D’Onta Foreman and sprinted 99 yards for a score the other way.
Foreman was dragging the entire Red Raides defense to the goal line when Texas Tech’s Douglas Coleman stripped the ball and returned it for a school record.
That’s where the extra sprints after practice pay off. Going the length of the field and the Red Raiders are making Texas sweat. The Longhorns are coming off a big win against Baylor last week and were hoping to cruise to a win against the Red Raiders this week.
It appears they had different plans.
Texas Tech will be no easy out, though. They are 4-4, same as the Longhorns, and while they don’t play as tough as of a schedule, they lost a close game to the Oklahoma Sooners last week. They triumphed over a disappointing TCU team last week, who’s offensive potency hasn’t been able to carry them the way they hoped.
