Bad fortune not costing Texas Tech
By David Ubben
Texas Tech already entered today's game one of the most banged-up teams in the Big 12. It's getting worse.
Receiver Alex Torres suffered a knee injury, and three other Red Raiders (running back Aaron Crawford, offensive line Lonnie Edwards, running back Deandre Washington) were all carted off the field with injuries.
Despite that, Texas Tech is well-positioned with a 27-17 lead entering the fourth quarter of its winner-goes-bowling contest against Missouri.
Darrin Moore hauled in a 24-yard touchdown pass on 3rd-and-7 to push the Red Raiders ahead.
Quite the performance by Tech today on the road against an emotional Missouri team missing its coach, Gary Pinkel.
