Seth Doege of Texas Tech orchestrated two touchdown drives to give his team a 36-26 lead, but with less than three minutes remaining the Horned Frogs managed to claw back in to contention. Trevone Boykin found LaDarius Brown for a 60-yard touchdown with 2:25 remaining, but an onside kick attempt failed.
However, TCU managed to stop the Red Raiders and got the ball back with less than a minute to drive the field. Boykin completed several pass plays and got the Horned Frogs into field goal range where Jaden Oberkrom nailed his fifth field goal of the game, this time from 42 yards.
The Red Raiders won the coin toss for overtime and elected to play defense first, making the Horned Frogs take the field on offense first.
