Wednesday Practice Report

The No. 24-ranked Texas Tech Red Raiders (3-1, 0-0) practiced in shells for more than two hours on Wednesday, furthering their preparation for Saturday afternoon's meeting with Texas A&M (4-0, 0-0) at Kyle Field in College Station.

After opening practice with a series of individual drills, the team again worked through their field goal, punt and kickoff formations under the instruction of Special Teams Coach Ruffin McNeill. Senior punter Alex Reyes, who currently boasts the fourth best punting average in the nation (47.8), boomed several kicks in the direction of return-man Danny Amendola despite the heat of a steady rush.

Offensive highlights from practice came from quarterback Graham Harrell who connected with a number of different receivers on the day, including sophomore Eric Morris, who got behind the scout team defense for a 40-yard touchdown. For the first-team defense, team-leading tackler Joe Garcia came away with an interception for the second day in a row, pulling in a deflected pass near the sideline.

The Raiders will hold a light workout on the field of Jones AT&T Stadium tomorrow before traveling to College Station on Friday. Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. and the game will be broadcast nationally on ABC.
