Arizona Wildcats QB Khalil Tate turns on afterburners in win over Texas Tech
After struggling out the gate against the Texas Tech Red Raiders, Arizona Wildcats senior quarterback Khalil Tate found his footing before halftime.
Recording an interception and a fumble in the first quarter, Tate continued to attack the Red Raiders in the second.
Finding Stanley Berryhill for 12-yard score to tie things up at 7-7, Tate shook off the early turnovers.
But it was what he did with his legs two drives later that left the opposing defense gassed.
