Texas Tech Scores 21 Unanswered Points, Leads Mizzou 24-17 In Second Half

Texas Tech has gone on a roll against the Missouri Tigers. Mizzou lead 17-3 at one point in the first half but has lost the lead and the Red Raiders now lead 24-17 in the third quarter.

Mizzou was out to a 14-0 lead early in the first quarter at which one time I wrote: "Texas Tech's offense has enough firepower that 14 points isn't anything to feel good about (yet)."

I was right about that. Thanks to three Taylor Potts TD passes, the Red Raiders lead the Tigers 24-17 late in the third quarter. Not playing like Taylor Potts is Mizzou QB Blaine Gabbert. He's 7-of-17 for 49 yards and no TDs and no interceptions.

Since scoring their second touchdown midway through the first quarter, here are the result of Missouri's drives: Punt, turnover on downs, punt, fumble, field goal, halftime, punt and punt. It's hard to find a bright spot there.
