Bethel earns top receiver's respect in busy first start for freshman CB

Texas Tech freshman cornerback Nigel Bethel II got his first start career start Saturday and lined up across fromWest Virginiaflanker Kevin White almost every snap. White tied a career-high with 13 receptions and finished with 123 yards, giving him 100-plus for all sixWest Virginiagames this season.

Tech abandoned its usual field cornerback/boundary cornerback scheme with White always lined up to the right of the formation, covered by Bethel, and split end Mario Alford always to the left, covered by Justis Nelson.

Red Raiders' kickoff team mixes it up to minimize Alford's impact

West Virginia’s Mario Alford returned kickoffs for touchdowns this year againstAlabamaandKansasand came in second in the nation in kick-return average. Tech mixed it up against Alford, twice using shorter “sky” kickoffs to keep it out of his hands.

Alford returned the opening kickoff for 32 yards and another in the second quarter on which linebacker Sam Atoe cut him down at the Mountaineers’ 15-yard line.

Kramer Fyfe, who replaced Taylor Symmank on kickoffs two weeks ago, also had three touchbacks on seven kickoffs.

Webb aggravates ankle injury, shrugs it off

Texas Tech quarterback Davis Webb aggravated an injured left ankle with about 12 minutes left in the Red Raiders’ 37-34 loss Saturday toWest Virginia. He hobbled off after a failed third-down play and had the ankle re-taped, but appeared to be still limping on the next series.

Webb said he rolled the ankle in the third quarter the week before atKansasState.

“No excuses,” Webb said. “Got it taped up and just got to make some completions at the end of the game.”
