NOTING THE RED RAIDERS
Sophomore running back Kenny Williams scored Texas Tech's first points of the game on the Red Raiders' second offensive possession of the game. Williams scored on a one-yard touchdown run and tied the score at 7-7. The touchdown was his fourth of the season.
Sophomore Ryan Bustin cut a Texas lead to 14-10 with 13:56 remaining in the second quarter. Bustin connected on a 29-yard field goal to give him his 10th field goal of the season.
Bustin added his second field goal of the game with 5:03 remaining in the first half when he nailed a 41-yarder to cut a Texas lead to 21-13. The field goal gave him his fourth multiple field goal game of the season.
Junior Eric Ward went over the 100-yard receiving mark early in the third quarter to pick up his third 100-yard game of the season and fifth of his career. He is the first Tech receiver since Alex Torres to compile back-to-back 100-yard games since Alex Torres did so last year against Kansas State and Texas A&M.
