WATCH: Texas Tech’s Des Smith hauls in spectacular INT

The Texas Tech Red Raiders continue to surprise teams with their defense.

Cornerback Des Smith made an acrobatic, bobbling interception of West Virginia quarterback Will Grier to snuff out a West Virginia drive.

Look at the concentration necessary to make this catch:

That’s a heck of a play, especially considering Smith is just a sophomore. That’s the first interception of his career at Texas Tech.

West Virginia had some momentum on this drive after Texas Tech’s third missed field goal of the game. Smith made sure that ended very quickly.

The Red Raiders lead the Mountaineers 35-24 after three quarters in Morgantown, W.Va.
