    2012 Texas Tech Red Raiders

    Texas Tech 0
    Ohio State 24

    What looked like a slugfest in the first half, turned into a whitewash in the second. The rain came down in buckets the whole game, and served the Red Raiders well in the first half. After being stopped on 4th and 1, on their opening drive, All-American DE Jake Paul recovered a fumble inside the 5 yard line, killing a fine drive by Buckeyes. Texas Tech QB Seth Doege led a long drive that stalled at the Ohio State 25, but came away with no points as the 42 yard FG fell short.

    Ohio State HB Berry led the way on a scoring drive to give the Buckeyes a 7 point lead. Two plays later State intercepted Doege, but after a short drive was forced to punt. After a big pass play to A Torres, and a big run from HB Harrison Jeffers, Tech K L Jordan missed his second FG of the first half, allowing Ohio State to carry the 7 point lead into the half.

    A strong running game, and an efficient passing game, put another 10 points on the board for Ohio State. With 31 seconds remaining in the half, Doege woefully underthrew a streaking J Franks, and Buckeye CB T Howard snatched it out of the air, and took it back for a TD.

    That was all she wrote for the Red Raiders as Seth Doege threw two more interceptions in the 4th quarter, making the days of Graham Harrell seem like a million years ago. On the bright side for Texas Tech, was the continued strong play by HB Harrison Jeffers, who had over 100 yards rushing, and DE Jake Paul, who racked up 8 tackles and a fumble recovery.

    Next week, Texas Tech visits the Kansas Jayhawks.

    Week4 TTU 31 KU 26

    Texas Tech Player of the Game SS Tony Harris
    Tony finished the game with 5 tackles, 2 sacks, and a fumble return for a TD

    Kansas opened the game with a long drive, capped off by a TD run by HB D. Sands. Texas Tech quickly got on the scoreboard themselves when WR Cornelius Douglas took the ensuing kickoff back for a TD. After KU went for it on a 4th and 19 (what the hell?), Tech QB Seth Doege threw his first pass with 27 seconds left in the first quarter; to the wrong team. Two plays later Kansas HB Deshaun Sands answered with a 40 yard TD run, which was subsequently answered by WR Adam James, who ran the following kickoff back for a TD. Only a missed extra point seperated the two at the end of the first quarter, Tech 14 - Kansas 13.

    The Red Raiders opened added to their lead to start the second quarter, when QB Seth Doege threw his first TD pass of the season to a wide open Harrison Jeffers. Kansas fought back, and Sands scored his third TD on a one yard plunge with just over a minute left in the half. Douglas had another long kick return, but with 35 seconds left in the half Kansas Daymond Patterson, intercepted Doege and took it back 98 yards for a TD. Going into the half Texas Tech 21 - Kansas 26.

    After a short drive to start the second half, a fumble by the KU kick returner fumbled the ball, and Player of the Game SS Tony Harris grabbed it up and took it in for the go-ahead TD. The rest of the game featured a ferocious pass rush which held Kansas scoreless the rest of the game, and a strong ground game from the Red Raiders chewed up the clock.

    The victory evens up the Red Raiders record at 2-2.

    Yeah, it was. Every other play I looked up, and he was there. He even broke into the backfield at the end of the first half, to tackle a receiver on a 2 pt attempt.

    Oklahoma 52 Texas Tech 10

    Nothing good to report here, as Oklahoma dominates this game in every way, racking up almost 500 yards of offense, while holding Texas Tech to under 100. The story of the game was Sooner HB, Jermie Calhoun, either running through gapping holes in the Red Raider front seven, or running over them for long gains. With no threat of a passing game, HB Harrison Jeffers had no chance to get going. QB Doege seems to get worse every week, missing numerous open receivers, and adding three more interceptions to his season total. Rumor has it he may leave after his junior year to enter the Pop Warner draft; he is currently ranked as the third best QB among 6-7 year olds. Tech WR Cornelius Douglas continues to play well on special teams, averaging 44 yards a return, and setting up the Red Raiders only TD with a long return.

    Texas Tech beats rival Baylor in OT

    [​IMG]
    HB JOSH TALBOT LOOKS FOR A HOLE BEHIND GUARD TERRY FREDERICK EN-ROUTE TO A 13 YARD TD RUN

    Baylor took the ball to start, and drove into the Tech redzone, before being stopped on 4th and inches. FB Ryan Fitzpatrick capped off a long drive by the Red Raiders with a one yard TD plunge. Tech carried a 7-0 lead into the second.

    The Bears capped off a long TD drive with a 3 yard TD pass from QB Bryce Petty to HB Caleb McEachern to even the score at seven. Tech answered with a FG, but two plays later, reserve receiver, JJ Davis, took the ball on a reverse, and ran for 71 yards to paydirt. Texas Tech was up to the challenge, and QB Seth Doege drove his team into the redzone, where HB Josh Talbot punched it in from three yards out. Talbot finished the day with 3 TD's, 131 yards rushing and 80 yards on 3 receptions filling in for the injured Harrison Jeffers. The Red Raiders led at the half, 17-14.

    Texas Tech opened the third with a long, efficient drive capped off by 13 yard TD run by Josh Talbot, pictured above. It did not take Baylor long to get back in the game. The Bears scored a TD on a sweep by FB Andrew Judy, and added a FG after a Tech 3-and-out, to tie the game at 24 all, to start the fourth.

    On the opening drive of the fourth, Doege was hit in the backfield, and the ball floated to Baylor SS Trentson Hill. The Bears now had all the momentum, and quickly drove into the Tech redzone, when defensive end Nick Benson, dropped back into coverage, picked off Petty at the 10 yard line. The following play, Doege rolled left, and found Cornelius Douglas wide open down the field for a 90 yard TD pass. Baylor returned to the redzone quickly, but was stopped on 4th and goal. After a Tech 3 and out, the Bears drove a short field and Petty threw his second TD of the day with 39 seconds left. The Red Raiders, faced with playing for OT, or going for the win opted for the latter, and Doege once again went deep, this time to WR Alex Torres. K Jordan, lined up for a short FG, but missed it wide left.

    Baylor took the ball to start OT, and returned the favor by missing a FG wide right. On Tech's second play of OT, Josh Talbot ran off the left tackle,and went into the endzone untouched, from 22 yards out. What a game.

    We needed this one. This was the first back-to-back wins for Texas Tech under coach Harris, plus there were 9 recruits in attendance. Next week, the Red Raiders go on the road to Texas A&M.

    Heartbreak in Lubbock

    The Red Raiders suffered a heartbreaking, season ending loss at home today, to Big 12 foe Oklahoma Sate. The loss is kills any chance Texas Tech had a bowl game, and furthermore, legitimacy.

    The story of the first half was dominant defense by the Red Raiders, but also missed opportunities. Tech QB Seth Doege missed a number of wide open receivers in the first half, yet entered the second with a 10 point lead and the ball.

    Oklahoma State narrowed the lead to 3 to start the fourth, and with 1:18 to go in the game had a 7 point lead. Tech starting QB Seth Doege suffered a season ending injury early and the third quarter, and it was up to backup Garrett Riley to even the score. Riley led a heroic drive converting an early 3rd and 18, and capping it off with a 34 yard TD pass to Jacoby Franks with 8 seconds remaining to send the game to OT.

    Oklahoma State scored on the first play of OT with a 25 yard TD run, but Tech answered with a one yard run from HB Jeffers. Kicker Lou Jordan missed a short FG on the ensuing possession, and two plays later the Cowboys threw a 23 yard TD pass to end the game.

    Senior halfback Harrison Jeffers had 147 yards and a TD on the ground, while freshman SS Tony Harris led the defense with 6 tackles and 3 sacks.

    The game is a bitter disappointment for the Red Raiders who were looking to improve on last years 5-7 record; most especially the sixteen seniors who are either starters or major contributors to the team.
