Texas Tech Students React To Tech's Win Over Oklahoma

The Texas Tech Football team wasn't the only ones celebrating Saturday night's win against the Oklahoma Sooners. Across campus Sunday, Tech students were sharing their own play by plays of Saturday night's victory from beginning to end.

"Walking into the game I wasn't sure about our outcome, especially after the first drive with the 63 yard touchdown interception return," says Matt Sellers, a Texas Tech student.

"I was thinking Oklahoma is pretty tough and they have three good running backs, if Tech doesn't show up, it could be a quick game," says Joe With, a Texas Tech student.

"I was hoping we'd give them a close game, but I never expected this," says Trent Gonzales, a Texas Tech student.

But the Texas Tech football team rallied and pulled off the unexpected, defeating the number three ranked Oklahoma Sooners Saturday night.

"I was taken back. Where has this team been all year," says With.

"It was really fantastic to see us upset a top-ten or top-five team like that. It's something we haven't done in quite a few years," says Sellers.

"Toward the end of the game my friend turned to me and was like, 'Dude we got to rush the field. We got to do it,'" says With.

With thousands of students rushing the field, authorities were also forced to play defense Saturday night. NewsChannel 11's cameras caught one trooper shove a student while another trooper used her baton to push students back.

"I did come in contact with a sheriff and he tried to tackle me but I managed to escape," says Sellers.

"I saw these cops come out and I was like I don't know about this I don't want to go to jail for running on a football field. A couple guys in front of me did it and so my friend and I jumped over and sprinted to center field," says With. "ESPN had their cameras rolling. It was fun."

"It looked like the cops were trying to stop some people. It looked like one guy was arrested. I think there were too many kids to do anything," says Gonzalez.

"They were just a presence. They (authorities) were all smiling," says Karen Ross, a Texas Tech student.

Texas Tech football fans should be smiling even bigger in a few weeks time, when bowl games scenarios are decided.

NewsChannel 11 tried to contact Texas Tech security officials, but we were unable to reach them for comment.
