Tech gets dramatic win over Nevada
By David Ubben
A rough night in Lubbock, but the Tech faithful will take it.
Seth Doege, a week after his historic play at New Mexico, hit Eric Ward for a game-winning 4-yard touchdown with 36 seconds left to give the Red Raiders a 35-34 win over the Wolf Pack.
The big news of the night, though? Receiver Darrin Moore had 21 catches for 339 yards through two games this year, but didn't have one against Nevada.
Why? Coach Tommy Tuberville says he'll be "out for awhile" with an ankle and knee injury. He returned to the field in a boot and crutches in the second half.
Not what Texas Tech wanted to see, but the Red Raiders are 3-0. It could be worse.
Tech travels to Kansas next week, who lost 66-24 to Georgia Tech last week. The Red Raiders host Texas A&M on Oct. 8.
It doesn't sound like Moore will be available for that one, but the Red Raiders better find a way to make their offense work without him in the two weeks before that game kicks off.
