Almost everyone predicted a very low-scoring national title game between No. 1 Virginia and No. 3 Texas Tech this evening.

The Cavaliers and the Red Raiders have not disappointed in that department.

Virginia is leading Texas Tech, 12-6, at the under-12 timeout in the opening half of the national championship game.

It took the Red Raiders nearly eight whole minutes to score their first field goal of the game. It took 7:22, to be exact.

The fans aren't very amused.

Hopefully the scoring can pick up from here...
