    Red Raider Review: Week 1

    Location: Jones AT&T Stadium
    Texas Tech 49
    Southern Methodist 10

    Notable Stats:

    QB T. Potts 22-29 360yds 4tds 1int 75% comp rate
    HB H. Jeffers 9att 34yds 1td, 2rec 44yds 1td
    DT C. Whitlock 7tck 3sck 3tfl 1ff
    SS C. Davis fr for td


    Texas Tech started off slow in a game that would eventually turn into a blowout. The first two drives resulted in a punt and an interception. Potts got hit while releasing the ball and threw up a gift to an SMU defender resulting in a FG for SMU. Coach DT31407 must've had some "pleasant" words with the O after that because they scorched the SMU defense for a total of 42 points in the 2nd and 3rd quarters. Tech finished up with 510 total yards of offense, 441 of those passing. Defense had a strong showing, only allowing 332 yards of total offense against the pass-happy offense of June Jones. The front seven were in the backfield all day and QB Bo Levi Mitchell was helped off of the field at least 4 times throughout the game. Defense ended up with 7 sacks and 4 turnovers for the game. Overall, a very good first game for the Red Raiders this season. Wreck'em Tech!

    Injury Report:
    WR L. Leong Abdominal Strain Out 4-6 weeks

    Interesting Stat:

    Taylor Potts' completions were made to 9 different receivers and his 4 touchdowns were to a different receiver each time. No starting wideouts scored a touchdown.
