The No. 24-ranked Texas Tech Red Raiders (3-1, 0-0) practiced in shells Tuesday for the second time since knocking off Southeastern Louisiana 62-0 on Saturday night at Jones AT&T Stadium. The Red Raiders spent most of Tuesday beginning to install the gameplan for Saturday's road contest in College Station against undefeated Texas A&M (4-0, 0-0).
The team started practice off with individual drills, including a period of 1-on-1's between the wide receivers and the scout team secondary. Senior receiver Jarrett Hicks
returned to first-team practice field and proved a difficult match-up for defenders throughout the day, making a number of plays in the defensive backfield.
After running through each of the special teams sets, the offense and defense squared off for the short, six-play 11-on-11 section of practice. Quarterback Graham Harrell came out firing, finding receiver Robert Johnson for 25 yards on the period's first play. Harrell completed each of his three attempts before the team broke into its respective scout areas.
The Raiders will be in action again on Wednesday, furthering their preparations for Saturday's meeting with the Aggies. The two Big 12 South foes last met on Nov. 5 of 2005 in what was a 56-17 home victory for Tech. Saturday's kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. and will be broadcast nationally on ABC.
