I know this win again FIU was not the greatest in the grand scheme of things but I was just happy to hear my Red Raiders on the field. Let me start off saying that I am very impressed with Cody Hodges. He has been in the program for quite a while and seems to have a good understanding of things. I am very glad to have him at the helm of this offense. We finally have a rushing QB unlike the previous years. Not to mention Graham Harrell…he made a very impressive NCAA début in my eyes tonight and since either he or Chris Todd will be competing for the leadership role at Tech next year all I have to say is WOW! Both of these guys will make a great showing and upset a lot of defenses.
Now for a little stats.
Texas Tech won the game 56 – 3
Cody Hodges passed 29/37 for 454 yds, 4 TD’s and 0 Int’s
Graham Harrell passed 7/8 for 64 yds, 0 TD’s and 0 Int’s (But if you ask me this RS freshman showed a lot of maturity when he had the opportunity to pass for a TD but he didn’t like the way the D looked so he changed the play to allow Woods to Rush for a TD.)
Cody Hodges even rushed for a 17 yard TD in the 2nd Quarter.
Besides that the ball was spread around very effectively.
Henderson went for 8 car and 67 yrds; 1 TD
Woods went for 6 car and 42 yrds; 2 TD’s
Hodges went for 7 car and 44 yds; 1 TD
Johnson 9 rec and 129 yds; 1 TD
Amendola went for 5 Rec and 91 yds; 2 TD’s
Filani went for 4 rec and 78 yrds
Henderson went for 3 rec and 62 yrs; 1 TD
A grand total of 653 yard (518 Passing, 135 Rushing) AND our best receiver (Hicks) was not even in the game!
I can not wait till our Big 12 games start. UT looks to be VERY tough (Good game btw against OSU) and A&M will be a challenging as always.
Sorry for the long post but I am just excited about this years college football.
GO RED RAIDERS!!!!!
