2012 Texas Tech Red Raiders Texas Tech 0 Ohio State 24 What looked like a slugfest in the first half, turned into a whitewash in the second. The rain came down in buckets the whole game, and served the Red Raiders well in the first half. After being stopped on 4th and 1, on their opening drive, All-American DE Jake Paul recovered a fumble inside the 5 yard line, killing a fine drive by Buckeyes. Texas Tech QB Seth Doege led a long drive that stalled at the Ohio State 25, but came away with no points as the 42 yard FG fell short. Ohio State HB Berry led the way on a scoring drive to give the Buckeyes a 7 point lead. Two plays later State intercepted Doege, but after a short drive was forced to punt. After a big pass play to A Torres, and a big run from HB Harrison Jeffers, Tech K L Jordan missed his second FG of the first half, allowing Ohio State to carry the 7 point lead into the half. A strong running game, and an efficient passing game, put another 10 points on the board for Ohio State. With 31 seconds remaining in the half, Doege woefully underthrew a streaking J Franks, and Buckeye CB T Howard snatched it out of the air, and took it back for a TD. That was all she wrote for the Red Raiders as Seth Doege threw two more interceptions in the 4th quarter, making the days of Graham Harrell seem like a million years ago. On the bright side for Texas Tech, was the continued strong play by HB Harrison Jeffers, who had over 100 yards rushing, and DE Jake Paul, who racked up 8 tackles and a fumble recovery. Next week, Texas Tech visits the Kansas Jayhawks.
