Here’s the reason why Jett Duffey didn’t get a failing grade - 444 passing yards. Duffey may have had three costly turnovers, but we can’t overlook the fact that he had 524 total yards of offense and was responsible for four touchdowns. He also helped the team get back into the game with a 17-point fourth quarter.
Running backs: B
The backs (including Duffey) totaled 141 yards on the ground. Duffey led the group with 80 yards and Da’Leon Ward had 41. Both Ward and Tre King also had receiving yards on the night (62 total).
Wide receivers: A
The receivers balled out yet again, and Antoine Wesley continues to lead the pack. He had 171 yards on the night on 8 catches and 2 touchdowns. T.J. Vasher accounted for 87 yards and also had 2 touchdowns. Vasher even caught another ball that was out of bounds like he did against Iowa State, and kept his feet inbounds.
What a catch by Texas Tech's T.J. Vasher, who followed this up with a TD catch. Now it's 34-27 with 4:47 to go. pic.twitter.com/zTwJRgpE9A— Max Olson (@max_olson) November 11, 2018
Offensive line: B
The o-line played well for the most part against Texas. The guys gave up four sacks, but also helped get the run game get going with 141 rushing yards. Overall, I think they gave the rest of the offense a chance to win.
