Texas Tech Pulls Out a Gritty Win
By Robert Snyder
Texas Tech Red Raider Football’s 24 to 17 win over Missouri on Saturday was the Red Raiders best win of the 2010 season.
Quarterback Taylor Potts relieved starter Steven Sheffield late in the first half and led the Red Raiders to 21 points, two of those touchdowns were passes to Lyle Leong.
In my opinion, Saturday’s game was the best Potts and the Red Raider team looked all year.
The defense held their own after giving up two early touchdowns and the offense only turned the ball over once.
Special teams still needs to improve after a 54 yard field goal attempt was blocked in the 4th quarter and too many punts were not returned.
The Red Raiders next game is Saturday against Oklahoma. Kickoff is at 2:30p on ABC and 1340 THE FAN pregame coverage starts at 11:30am with the First Capital Bank of Texas Countdown to Kickoff.
