Red Raider Football falls short 45-44 in Stillwater

Texas Tech arguably put together their most complete game this past Saturday against 13th ranked Oklahoma State. Their loss came at a missed extra point attempt that would have tied the game at 45-45. The program hasn’t won against the Cowboys since 2008 and hasn’t won in Stillwater since 2001. The Red Raiders are now 4-6 and have to win out against Iowa State and Baylor in order to qualify for a bowl game. The team will travel to Ames, Iowa this Saturday and kickoff is at 2:30 PM.

Men’s Basketball Takes Care Of Houston Baptist

The Red Raiders ushered in a new era of basketball as Chris Beard made his head coaching debut. This debut was greeted with a 93-67 rout of Houston Baptist as the Red Raider offense was on full display. Keenan Evans had a career high of 28 points, but other Red Raiders also contributed to the win. Anthony Livingston had 16 points along with 5 boards and 2 assists. Shaddell Millinghaus marked his Red Raider debut with 11 points, 5 boards, and 2 assists in 13 minutes. Considering that it was the first game of the season, there were some issues that needed to be addressed, but it also seems that Coach Beard has a bright future here in Lubbock.
