Running Forward: Red Raider run game shows potential in loss to Cowboys

    Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury was on the hot seat at the beginning of the season but has his Red Raiders 3-0 so far this year

While Washington only has 4.8 catches per game, he averages a league-high 27.4 yards per catch and is second in the league at 130 yards per game. But there were plenty of momentum swings. "Out of all the stuff that happened in that game that was the biggest play, no question". "We had a guy for the quarterback and he didn't play the quarterback, so we have to do better as coaches and we have to do better as players". The Red Raiders briefly seized complete control of the game when Marcell Ateman was ruled short of the line to gain on a 3rd-and-10 completion at the Texas Tech 10-yard line, but a replay review handed him a first down, and Rudolph tied the game again one play later on a toss to running back Justice Hill.

Shimonek was 29 of 46 for 330 yards with one touchdown and just his second interception of the season.

At halftime, the Cowboys had outgained Tech, 343-172, but only held a four-point lead because of a handful of costly mistakes. But at the end of the day, that's what we want: "five minutes left, our offense out on the field, and we need to be able to score in those situations". "It's a lot easier to correct it after a win". The Red Raider defense contributed to the offensive cause with a 95-yard pick-six by Damarcus Fields. "Missed field goals here of there".

For all that went wrong, Tech rallied from 31-17 and 34-20 deficits and took over the ball in a tie game with 5:30 left.

TCU doesn't even have the best offense the Cowboys will face this year, and there are several others that may not be as good, but certainly have the coaching, talent and system to at least attempt to duplicate what the Horned Frogs did.

As you can see, these guys can hurt you in so many ways through the air, and they are more unsafe in the passing game than TCU. OSU made a return to the end zone again as Rudolph threw in another touchdown.

Shimonek's pass was batted away with two seconds left, and Michael Barden booted a 22-yard field goal as time expired.

"Mason told me, if you get (man-to-man coverage) on this certain play, if you get press coverage, I'm going to come your way", Ateman said.

This marked the Red Raiders' first loss of the season as they now have an overall record of 3-1, according to Tech Athletics. The senior wouldn't compare them Saturday night. "So we'll find out this week what we're made of really".

No. 14 Oklahoma State was brought back down to earth last week by TCU after three impressive early-season wins had Cowboys fans dreaming of a Big 12 title and possible berth in the College Football Playoff.
