Coaches Review The Battle.......
Texas Tech Head Coach Spike Dykes:
(On the Red Raider's win) "Tonight was a nice win for us. Ifelt our
team made progress. We're capable of a lot of things and we proved that
tonight. I think the big difference in tonight's ball game was that we
kept coming. We had more depth and talent and were able to do more. We
were good offensively. The line did well and so did Zebbie and the
receivers. Zebbie continues to improve. He played extremely well. The
kicking game was good. Greaser had excellent kickoffs and Hernandez
continues to do well punting."
Utah State Head Coach John L. Smith:
(On the Aggie defeat) "They are a much better team than we are. We
made them look better by making mistakes. We needed a perfect game to
win. Zebbie Lethridge is an outstanding athlete. Fans that were
doubting him were bandwagon fans. We needed to take some gambles to
have a chance. Hanspard is a great running back. We don't play them
next year . . . thank goodness. The Texas Tech defense should be
credited. They had a great game."
