What can one say about Texas Tech and TCU? The two have played twice since the bad old days, for an average score of about 37 to 24, advantage Tech. Rarely does an average mislead so violently. There’s been regime change in Lubbock since then, too, so old stats probably don’t tell the story much, anyway.
But the scoreboard that Frog fans have had on Raider fans since 2006 has been one of the sweetest rejoinders in Texas for a few years. To start Tech Week at Frogs o’ War, let’s just re-live some of the joy that prompts it.

Of course the Marvin White hit late in the game gets lots of attention; it should. It's a focus late in these highlights:
