Iowa State rallies to defeat Texas Tech

Anderson's 3 TDs lead No. 16 TCU past No. 6 Oklahoma St

DaMarcus Fields returned an interception 97 yards for Texas Tech's first points, and Justin Stockton and Desmond Nisby had consecutive 1-yard runs to get the Red Raiders even at 34. As will Oklahoma State, which knows this unit is different. He completed 22 of 41 passes for 398 yards with two touchdowns but allowed two interceptions.

Oklahoma State's narrow 41-34 win over unranked Texas Tech did not impress the voters in this week's polls.

At the start of the second quarter, Shimonek threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Cantrell to put Tech up 14-7 with 14:14 left in the first half.

"That was tremendous", Cowboys receiver James Washington said.

Following a touchdown that pulled Texas Tech to within one touchdown of Oklahoma State Saturday night, Kliff Kingsbury made a gutsy call. With more than 7 minutes left in the quarter Tech's Demarcus Field took a surprise interception and brought it all the way back for a touchdown to tie the game. Right before halftime, Tech scored a field goal to tighten the gap to 21-17 with Oklahoma State still in the lead.

So, yes this game could have gotten out of hand if it wasn't for the play of the Tech defense. This tied the game, 7-7, with 7:42 left in the first quarter. The Red Raiders went three and out on their next offensive possession, followed by a blocked punt attempt that gave Oklahoma State the ball inside the 10-yard line. Shimonek was just 29 of 45 for 330 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Texas Tech: The Red Raiders twice settled for field goals with first downs inside the Oklahoma State 5. It is led by linebacker Dakota Allen, who earned league defensive player of the week honors after making 12 tackles and intercepting a pass in the Houston victory.

For decades, Kurdish politics have hinged on dreams of an independent Kurdish state. Tehran and Ankara fear the vote could lead to renewed conflict in the region.

On two drives, the Cowboys collected 112 total yards but came away with zero points.

If third-year Tech defensive coordinator David Gibbs can hold Cowboys quarterback Mason Rudolph and one of the nation's best wide receiving corps to under 50, the Red Raiders will have a chance to establish themselves as a contender - yes, a contender - in the Big 12.

Once in the red zone, Rudolph dashed into the end zone on a quarterback keeper, a play that had been effective all night for the Oklahoma State offense.

With the offseason additions, added experience and more depth, the Red Raiders are improved on that side of the ball. Where the Red Raiders excel is in turnover margin, where they rank second nationally.

After a missed 18-yard field goal by Oklahoma State, Tech started on its own 20-yard line.

"We lost. It doesn't feel good at all", Shimonek said.
