Tech down to 1,700 tickets for OSU game, tops sales for 2012 Baylor game

Texas Tech has 1,700 tickets remaining for its Nov. 2 home game against Oklahoma State, Tech spokesman Blayne Beal said at the end of the day Wednesday.

Beal also said Tech has sold nearly 20,000 from its allotment of 24,000 tickets for the Nov. 16 game against Baylor in Arlington. Only a limited number of lower-level seats are left in Tech’s stock.

Beal said Tech sold 17,000 tickets for last year’s Baylor game in Arlington.

For the first month of the season, Texas Tech didn't do much to convince anyone the Red Raiders could run the football effectively. West Virginia apparently did believe, however, at least by the way the Mountaineers' defense played.

Winbush moves into Tech two-deep, displacing JC transfer

Zach Winbush has replaced newcomer Andre Ross as Texas Tech’s backup bandit outside linebacker and has a chance to stay there for a while. Winbush played about 10 snaps Saturday in Tech’s 37-27 victory at West Virginia, giving relief to starter Pete Robertson.

Ross didn’t travel to West Virginia. Before Saturday, Ross had played in every game this year except against TCU, which he missed with an injury.

On its way to securing 21 commitments for its 2014 class, Texas Tech missed on a few guys. The Red Raiders' persistence has paid off and one Big 12 commit will visit Nov. 2.
