 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  The score was tied, Texas Tech was about to take over deep in its own territory with time running down in the fourth quarter, and quarterback Henry Colombi had one thing to say to running back SaRodorick Thompson. "I turned to SaRodorick and I said, "This is why I play college football," Colombi said. "It's for moments like these." Colombi drove the Red Raiders 70 yards to set up Jonathan Garibay's 32-yard field goal with 18 seconds left for a 23-20 victory over West Virginia on Saturday. Garibay had three field goals in all and Thompson had two short touchdown runs for Texas Tech (4-1, 1-1 Big 12), which bounced back from a 70-35 loss at Texas. "We wanted to capitalize on our opportunities this week," Colombi said. "We had a great week of practice. And I'm real proud of the guys." Despite missing numerous starters, including key offensive playmakers, the Red Raiders beat the Mountaineers (2-3, 0-2) for the third straight time, all when using a backup quarterback.

Colombi staked Texas Tech to a 17-0 lead, then watched West Virginia come back. The Mountaineers were driving for a potential go-ahead score. On third-and-goal from the Texas Tech 6, Jarret Doege's pass toward an open Leddie Brown sailed out of the end zone, forcing a field goal with 4:34 left to tie the game at 20-20. "To kind of bend and then definitely not break, that was huge," Texas Tech coach Matt Wells said. Colombi had plenty of time left. He threw 42 yards to Kaylon Geiger to put Texas Tech at the West Virginia 38. Thompson then ran 16 and 13 yards on the next two plays to put the Red Raiders in range for the winning field goal. West Virginia wasn't able to get past midfield on its final drive. - Texas Tech/AP College Football
