30–24–3 2014 TCU, 82–27

After the TCU defense caused a 3-and-out for the Tech offense, the TCU offense scored on their first drive following a Trevone Boykin 9 yard pass to Josh Doctson. After trailing for the first time of the 2015 season, Tech quickly responded (in just 70 seconds) on their next drive to tie the game 7–7 with a 1-yard rush from DeAndré Washington. Momentum slowed for the Red Raiders following a high snap that went over the head of Patrick Mahomes that resulted in a safety. The Horned Frogs scored on their next possession to extend their lead 16–7. On the following kickoff, Jakeem Grant returned the kick to the 50 yard line, giving some momentum for Tech. With Washington's 20 yard touchdown run, the Red Raiders closed back in on the Horned Frogs to trail 16–14 late in the first quarter.

Early in the second quarter, the Tech special teams blocked a Jaden Oberkrom field goal attempt. A ruffing the passer penalty helped keep the drive alive for the Red Raiders, who capped it off with a 45-yard pass from Mahomes to Grant for a touchdown. With the touchdown, the Red Raiders took their first lead of the day with 13:22 left in the first half. With both teams punting on their next possessions, TCU settled for a 42-yard field goal from Oberkrom to trail 19–21 with 9:46 left in the half. On a 3rd and long, TCU retook the lead with Boykin connecting with Doctson for 52 yards for a touchdown. On a 4th and 1, Mahomes ran 4 yards for touchdown, with Tech retaking the lead with 3:26 left in the half. With 0:15 left in the half, another lead change occurred with a 4-yard pass from Boykin to Doctson. At the half, TCU lead Texas Tech 33–28.

Receiving the ball to start out the second half, TCU marched down the field. After a touchdown call was overturned upon further review, the Horned Frogs sent out their field goal unit. However, on the 25 yard attempt Oberkrom missed with the ball going wide right. The mistakes continued for TCU 2 plays later as a defensive pass interference gave the Red Raiders 15 yards following a deep pass that went incomplete. After a 3rd down play within the red zone, TCU committed an unnecessary roughness penalty that gave the Red Raiders another opportunity to score. Following the penalty, Texas Tech scored with a 2-yard run from Washington to take a 35–33 lead with 6:28 left in the 3rd. With 2:53 left in the 3rd, Green ran 7 yards for a touchdown to give TCU a 40–35 lead. TCU received their 3rd 15 yard penalty following a sideline interference call. With a false start penalty against Tech, the Red Raiders faced a 3rd and 17. On the following play, Grant fumbled the ball and recovered it. However, he failed to make the 1st down and Tech settled for a field goal instead. With Clayton Hatfield's 37 yard field goal, Tech trailed TCU 38–40 with 0:44 left in the 3rd.

On 4th and 2 in the 4th quarter, Mahomes ran to gain the 1st down, Tech's first successful 4th down conversion for the day. A few plays later TCU committed yet another foul, giving Tech a 1st down. 2 plays later Tech found the end zone with a 1-yard run from Washington to give the Red Raiders a 45–40 lead with 10:53 left to play. TCU reclaimed the lead with a Kyle Hicks 21 yard run. With the 2 point conversion, TCU lead 48–45 with 8:22 left to play.

With Hatfield's kick Tech lead the Horned Frogs 52–58 with 5:55 left to play. TCU was penalized yet again on their first play following the kickoff due to a delay of game. The Texas Tech defense forced a 3-and-out for TCU, who punted the ball on 4th and 8. Going 3-and-out on their next possession, Tech punted the ball back to TCU on 4th and 4 with nearly 3 minutes left to play. With 0:23 left to play, TCU scored a touchdown following a tipped ball to take a 55–52 lead. Despite another 15 yard penalty against TCU, Tech fell to the Horned Frogs 55–52 and dropped to 3–1.
