- With the opening drive touchdown, Texas Tech has now scored in 197 consecutives games dating back to October 25, 1997.


- The Red Raiders held the Horned Frogs scoreless in the first quarter; marking the first time they have done that since holding New Mexico scoreless in the first quarter last season.


- Texas Tech held TCU scoreless in the first half, which is the first time the Red Raiders have done that to a Big 12 opponent since holding Kansas State to no points in the first half in 2009.


- The 10 points allowed are the fewest the Red Raiders have allowed in a Big 12 Conference game since 2007 when Tech beat Texas A&M 35-7.

Kiiff Kingsbury (Texas Tech head coach)


On the game


"No,  I haven't. I haven't. Pretty bizarre, but I thought our kid's effort was incredible the entire time. Their level of effort from start to finish. Played their hearts out and found a way to win an ugly game."


On Davis Webb


"I mean that's what he's done. How he's approached it since we made our decision. He's taken advantage of the reps. He's a good player. I mean, he's a really good player. I couldn't be more proud of the way he stepped up and came down the field and won the game for us."


Gary Patterson (TCU head coach)


On the officiating


"I can't talk about the officiating, but I will watch it. I'm not happy."


On the fourth quarter


"Well, yeah, you had the questionable fair catch which was a touchdown. I still have to see that because nobody has seen it. But we don't tackle the guy down the sideline. We stop him, we have a chance to go kick and field goal and go win. I think you have to give them credit. They found a way to do what they needed to do and we didn't. You're tied up. You've got to find a way to win."
