Red Raiders have opportunity with Longhorns dragging
As Texas Tech arrives at the end of its regular season, the Red Raiders are presented with a rare opportunity: the chance to beat Texas in Austin, something that hasn’t happened since 1997.
Could it set up any better?
■ Texas’ top two running backs are hurt, leading rusher D’Onta Foreman sidelined by surgery for a broken finger and Johnathan Gray questionable with a foot injury.
■ The Longhorns aren’t good to begin with. They’re 4-6, much like that 1997 team that finished 4-7.
■ Their passing game’s nearly nonexistent, and special teams have cost them games.
