FINAL: Texas Tech rallies from 20-point deficit in 45-34 victory over KU

Texas Tech dominated the second and third quarters, overcoming an early 20-point deficit in a 45-34 victory over Kansas on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.

The Jayhawks — who came into the game with just one lost turnover all season — gave it away four times Saturday. That included Jordan Webb's first three interceptions this year.

KU started well, taking a 20-0 lead with 3:39 left in the first quarter on a fumble recovery by receiver Kale Pick in the end zone.

Just 7 minutes, 51 seconds later, Texas Tech grabbed the lead, 21-20, following a 13-yard touchdown pass form Seth Doege to Jacoby Franks.

Doege completed 29 of 46 passes for 366 yards and three touchdowns with an interception.

Webb, meanwhile, was 16-for-22 for 239 yards with three touchdowns and three interceptions.

A highlight for KU was Brandon Bourbon, who rushed 10 times for 101 yards and a touchdown. He also contributed KU's longest run of the year: a 51-yard TD run in the first quarter.

KU (2-2) will travel to Stillwater, Okla., to play Oklahoma State at 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 8.
