The Red Raiders might miss the injured Eric Stephens badly, but Tech got strong performances from fifth-year senior Aaron Crawford and true freshman DeAndre Washington.
When Texas Tech running back Eric Stephens went down with a season-ending knee injury in the fifth game of the season, the implications were severe for the Tech offense.
The Red Raiders might still miss Stephens badly, but the running game showed up in Saturday’s loss to No. 17 Kansas State. Tech got career highs of 21 carries for 91 yards from fifth-year senior Aaron Crawford and a touchdown apiece from Crawford and true freshman DeAndre Washington.
