No. 24 Red Raiders fall to West Virginia 46-35

Will Grier threw four of his five touchdown passes in the second half and West Virginia overcame an 18-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat No. 24 Texas Tech 46-35 on Saturday.

West Virginia (4-2, 2-1) beat a ranked opponent for the first time in 10 tries on Saturday.

Nic Shimonek threw four first-half TD passes for Texas Tech, but the Red Raiders (4-2, 1-2) couldn't overcome a Mountaineer comeback late.

Shimonek finished 24-of-39 with 323 yards.

T.J. Vasher recorded touchdown receptions of 60 & 53 yards against West Virginia. It was his first touchdowns of his career.

Ka'Raun White had fourth-quarter TD catches of 32 and 17 yards to give the Mountaineers their first lead, and Grier capped the scoring with an 11-yard pass to Sills with 3:23 left.

Sills also had scoring catches of 13 and 8 yards to boost his national-leading total to 12 this season.

White's brother, Kyzir White, intercepted Shimonek on Texas Tech's next drive to dash the Red Raiders' hopes.
