Tech quarterback Harrell bolster's case for the Heisman
LUBBOCK, Texas -- Graham Harrell punched his ticket to New York. Whether he wins the Heisman Trophy remains to be seen but Texas Tech’s senior quarterback is viewed as the front-runner after throwing for 456 yards and six touchdowns against Oklahoma State.
“I think (this win) says a lot,” Harrell said. “It’s big. A lot of people picked us to lose and thought we wouldn’t be ready to play. That’s the thing about this team. We put games behind us and get ready for our next opponent... We’ve said all year we have a chance to do something special.”
Harrell fumbled on Tech’s first possession. Harrell and the Red Raiders then scored touchdowns on their next seven possessions before Harrell fumbled again late in the game. T-Tech never punted.
“Give him a lot of credit,” said OSU coach Mike Gundy. “He played very well. He deserves the accolades he’s receiving.”
