We have a major upset brewing in the opening session of the second day of the 2019 NCAA Tournament's first round.

Texas Tech, the No. 3 seed in the West Region, is a popular Final Four pick. The Red Raiders looked extremely strong during the Big 12 regular season and seemed primed for a deep NCAA Tournament run.

Chris Beard's team is off to a tough start today, though.

Texas Tech is in a tight battle at halftime.

The Red Raiders are leading Northern Kentucky, 30-26, after 20 minutes of play.

The second half of Texas Tech-Northern Kentucky will begin shortly.

The game is on TNT.
