A vocal leader
Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege has emerged as one of the biggest vocal leaders on the team, coach Tommy Tuberville said Wednesday.
The Red Raiders are on a three-game losing streak for the first time since 1998, and Tuberville said Doege has taken on a leadership role during this week of practices.
“I’ve been really proud of him, even though he hasn’t played as well in these three games,” Tuberville said. “He’s been very vocal, a lot more vocal. He’s still learning, too. It’s really hard to be a leader when you’re trying to grasp being a starter for the first time.”
James, Davis at full speed
Texas Tech tight end Adam James and weak safety Cody Davis, both of whom were injured Saturday against Oklahoma State, have returned to practice.
James, who suffered an abdominal contusion, and Davis, who strained his back, were both at full speed Wednesday, coach Tommy Tuberville said.
Both players were listed as probable in Texas Tech’s injury report.
Raiders hit with stomach flu
Tech coach Tommy Tuberville said six players were out sick Tuesday with a gastrointestinal virus, and three more got it Wednesday.
“It’s kind of going around the team,” Tuberville said. “Hopefully we can stay away from that this weekend because we’re going to need everybody.”
Tech faces Missouri at 2:30 p.m. Saturday in Columbia, Mo.
