OSU-Texas Tech is a tennis match. This game is all about breaking serve. Any possession in which a touchdown is not scored is a lost serve. OSU broke Tech in the second quarter, forcing a Red Raider punt. That’s how OSU got up 21-14. Tech broke back by intercepting Zac Robinson’s deep ball — Jamar Wall did the honors — with 1:28 left in the half at the Tech 14-yard line. Naturally, Tech went 86 yards in 10 plays, without facing a third down. That leaves us 35-28 at halftime.
I don’t blame OSU for throwing deep. The Cowboys were on their 45, and it was worth a shot. I don’t understand throwing deep to Tommy Devereaux. The next time Devereaux makes a big play will be the first time. Throw to Adarius Bowman. Throw to Dez Bryant. Throw to Brandon Pettigrew, for crying out loud, who hasn’t seen a ball come his way all day. But don’t throw to Tommy Devereaux. On the interception, the play basically was a jump ball. Wall leaped; Devereaux didn’t try to make a play. Turns out, because of OSU’s total inability to play defense, it was a huge, huge turnover and a huge, huge turnaround.
