After nine months of intense speculation and chatter, first-year head coach Tommy Tuberville and his coaching staff will debut the first Red Raider squad of their tenure on Sunday afternoon in front of a national television audience against SMU. Sunday’s game against the Mustangs will be televised nationally on ESPN with Mark Jones, Bob Davie and Holly Rowe calling the action. A live national radio broadcast will also be available through Compass Radio Networks. Texas Tech enters 2010 with high expectations after earning yet another bowl victory back on January 2 of this year in the Valero Alamo Bowl. The Red Raiders took control of the game in the fourth quarter and left the Alamodome with a 2010 BIG 12 STANDINGS 41-31 win over Michigan State of the Big Ten Conference. Texas Tech SOUTH CONF OVERALL STK and SMU will be playing for the first time since Sept. 13, 2008, when Baylor 0-0 0-0 L3 the Red Raiders handed the Mustangs a 43-7 defeat in Jones AT&T Oklahoma 0-0 0-0 W2 Stadium. In that game, Texas Tech piled up 693 yards of total offense Oklahoma State 0-0 0-0 L2 while holding June Jones’ first Mustang team to just 274. Quarterback Texas 0-0 0-0 L1 Graham Harrell was 31-of-48 with 493 yards and five touchdowns, Texas A&M 0-0 0-0 L2 while Michael Crabtree led the way with 164 yards on eight catches and Texas Tech 0-0 0-0 W3 caught three touchdown passes. Texas Tech leads the all-time series against SMU 31-16. NORTH CONF OVERALL STK 0-0 0-0 L3 TECH DEFEATS MICHIGAN STATE IN THE ALAMO BOWL Colorado 0-0 0-0 W1 SAN ANTONIO (AP)--No questions about Mike Leach. Those were the Iowa State 0-0 0-0 L7 ground rules Texas Tech quarterback Steven Sheffield laid down Satur- Kansas 0-0 0-0 L2 day night after saving the day in a thrilling Alamo Bowl victory that his Kansas State 0-0 0-0 L1 fired head coach would’ve loved. With everyone still talking about Leach - Missouri 0-0 0-0 W1 and who can blame them? - the Red Raiders blocked out the distractions Nebraska and rallied to beat Michigan State 41-31. No bowl teams in the country kicked off with more upheaval than Texas Tech and Michigan State (6-7). Leach’s firing did Michigan State the favor of drawing attention from its own black eye: 14 players who didn’t make the trip in the wake of a Nov. 22 dormitory brawl. Nine Michigan State players face charges of misdemeanor assault. But the short-handed Spartans held their own.They took a 28-27 lead into the fourth quarter, and appeared to get a break when Tech quarterback Taylor Potts left the game after injuring his non-throwing hand. He left with an Alamo Bowl-record 372 yards and two touchdowns. But this was still a Leach-built team. And in his offense, quarterbacks thrive. With Tech down 31-27, Sheffield marched the Red Raiders downfield in eight plays, the last an 11-yard touchdown pass to Detron Lewis. Baron Batch tacked on a 25-yard touchdown run to put it away.
