Boomer White drove in the go-ahead run in a dramatic eighth inning and TCU beat Big 12 rival Texas Tech 3-2 in the College World Series Sunday afternoon at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha.

The Horned Frogs (48-16) fell behind in the top of the eighth after starting pitcher Preston Morrison left the game, but they came back in the bottom half against Tech closer Jonny Drozd (7-1).

TCU, the No. 7 national seed, moves to a Tuesday game against the winner between Virginia and Mississippi on Sunday night. Texas Tech (45-20), in the CWS for the first time, will play the Virginia-Ole Miss loser in the afternoon.

TCU closer Riley Ferrell (3-1) got the win in relief of Morrison, who allowed five singles and struck out a career-high 10 in 7.1 innings.
