Halftime Analysis: Texas Tech 24, OU 7
By Jake Trotter
Lightning delayed the game an hour-and-a-half. The Sooners have yet to recover, on either side of the ball.
Best player in the half: Texas Tech’s Seth Doege gets overshadowed by the other top Big 12 quarterbacks. But he has shredded OU’s defense so far, completing 19 of 32 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns to Alex Torres.
Best call: On their opening possession, the Red Raiders scored a 44-yard touchdown on a slip screen to Torres. In the second quarter, Tech offensive coordinator Neal Brown came back to the play again. The result? A 33-yard Torres touchdown.
Stat of the half: The Sooners are without three defensive starters -- defensive tackle Casey Walker (hand), linebacker Tom Wort (bruised back) and cornerback Jamell Fleming (knee) -- and does it ever show. The Red Raiders have rolled up 330 yards of total offense, already. OU has allowed more than 400 yards only once (Missouri) all season.
