Texas Tech offensive coordinator Eric Morris said he counted nine dropped passes in Thursday’s loss at Oklahoma State.
“We dropped them at key times, too — some big third downs and some of our key players dropped some footballs,” Morris said. “It’s hard to win a game when you’re throwing it and you drop nine balls.”
One of the guilty parties was Jakeem Grant, who could have threatened the school single-game record for receptions. Grant caught a career-high 12 passes for 100 yards even after missing passes he could have caught on each of the Red Raiders’ first two series.
