Texas Tech takes 27-24 comeback in Colorado

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Matt Williams' 36-yard field goal with 2:09 left capped Texas Tech's comeback from a 10-point deficit and gave the Red Raiders a 27-24 win over Colorado on Saturday.

The Red Raiders (4-3, 2-3 Big 12) started the game-winning drive at midfield after Austin Zouzalik thwarted the Buffaloes' rugby punt strategy by grabbing the line-drive at his 47.

After Williams' field goal, the Buffaloes (3-4, 0-3) turned the ball over on downs at their own 22 with 1:44 left when Cody Hawkins misfired on three throws and completed another for 2 yards.

The Buffaloes got the ball back with 16 seconds left when the Red Raiders decided not to go for a field goal but Hawkins threw two more incompletions before completing his final pass, which was
fumbled away.
