Kansas State beats Texas Tech in OT

LUBBOCK, Texas - Nic Shimonek overthrew Dylan Cantrell in the back of the end zone on fourth and goal, as Texas Tech (4-5, 1-5) couldn’t hold on to a late lead falling in overtime to Kansas State (5-4, 3-3) 42-35.  

A strong surge in the third and early fourth quarter put Texas Tech up 35-24 with 14:10 remaining.  After Kansas State cut the lead to eight, the Red Raiders had a chance to ice it, but a 31-yard missed field goal by Clayton Hatfield gave the Wildcats new life.  They took the ensuing drive right down the field and was able to tie it up thanks to a two-point conversion.  

In overtime, Kansas State scored first on a Byron Pringle touchdown reception from eight yards out.  Texas Tech tried to respond, but came up just short from four yards out.  

Nic Shimonek finished with 405 yards through the air on 34-of-53 passing and four touchdowns.  The signal caller also threw his second pick-six of the season.  Tre King led the way on the ground with 71 yards on 16 carries and one touchdown.  Keke Coutee caught 12 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns.  

The Red Raiders outgained the Wildcats 527-408 in total offense and both teams forced one turnover each.  Kolin Hill of Texas Tech and Colby Moore of Kansas State were both ejected in the second quarter for targeting.  

The Red Raiders return to action next Saturday as they head to Arlington for a matchup with the Baylor Bears.  Kickoff set for 11 am.
