I’d like to start with post with a huge congrats to the football players. You’ve just upset your first ranked team of the season. Here’s to many more. Secondly, the fans were amazing last night. Students set a new attendance record for the second consecutive game, and actually didn’t all leave at half time. The blackout worked pretty well, too.
Last night was not a pretty game, but the defense had a great game, and a win is a win. Halfway to bowl eligibility, people! Without further adieu, here are your players of the game.
Offensive player of the game: Kenny Williams. While Amaro had more all purpose yardage, Williams was a playmaker. He was the first Tech player to score, and had 15 rushing and 56 receiving yards. The offense did not look its best last night, but Williams still was a productive member of that side of the ball and helped secure a Tech win.
Defensive player of the game: Can I do co-players? No objections? Alright, cool. I’m going with Terrance Bullitt and J.J. Gaines. Both had extremely productive games and kept the score low. Bullitt had six solo tackles, one of which was for a loss, and broke up four passes. Gaines had six solo tackles, one assist, and one huge interception.
Newcomer of the game: Does Davis Webb still count as a newcomer? Because there were not that many new guys that played last night. But Webb did come in at a tough time and had a 75% completion rate for a touchdown. Yes, he was only three for four, but hey, he got the team to where they needed to be in those four passes…the end zone.
Like I said earlier, Texas Tech is now halfway to bowl eligibility. The defense had an outstanding game, and Tech fans saw a low scoring game that none of us are used to. On to the next one.
