Geez, we got tired watching this game.
Texas Tech held off a game TCU Saturday afternoon in Fort Worth 56-53 in 3 Overtimes.
Yes, that's right, 3 Overtimes.
TCU scored 10-points in the last 2:30 of regulation play to tie the game at 36. There would be a lot more football left to be played.
The 2 teams traded touchdowns in the first 2 overtime periods and the Horned Frogs thought they might pull out the win when Jaden Oberkrom drilled a 38-yard field goal to take a 53-50 lead in the third overtime.
But Tech's Seth Doege threw his 7th (yes 7) touchdown pass to Alex Torres shortly after the field goal, giving the Red Raiders the win.
That win moves Tech to 5-1, 3-1 in the Big 12, TCU drops to 5-2 and 2-2 in the Big 12.
Both teams probably will sleep good tonight.
