LUBBOCK — The Arizona State Sun Devils (1-2) trailed by as much as 35-17 to the Texas Tech Red Raiders (2-0) before inching their way back, tying the game 45-45, then falling by a touchdown, 52-45 on Saturday night.
Over 550 yards of total offense and seven combined touchdowns headlined a wild first half full of explosive plays, key mistakes and poorly-timed turnovers on both sides.
Redshirt junior quarterback Manny Wilkins and the ASU offense led a pair of impressive early drives on offense, but the Devils had only managed a single field goal from freshman placekicker Brandon Ruiz as the game headed toward the midway mark of the first quarter.
The Red Raiders took a while to find a rhythm on the offensive side of the ball, but once they did, they didn’t look back.
