Tech Fans React To Red Raider Loss

The lead up to Saturday's football match-up between Texas Tech and Oklahoma University on the fan's side was high energy and high expectation. But never could any of those fans believe how The Red Raiders would travel home from Norman - speechless.

During the game, Tech fans watched as their beloved team begin to lose what many called the biggest game of what was then a 10-0 season. After the game we caught up with several Red Raider die-hards and this is what they had to say.

"Sad that they didn't play like they normally play. They're normally great. I think Tech fans will rally around the team though. That's how we are."

"Man, we just didn't show up tonight. We just didn't show up. OU looked great tonight, I'll give them that, but not feeling too hot."

"I was a little bit disappointed in the guys. They played awfully-good all year this year and it looks like they came down here and didn't play their game this year, I guess you would say."

For all the fans NewsChannel 11 spoke with, it's onward and upward with hopes of a big win over Baylor next weekend.

One fan put it best by saying, "It's just a game and these things just happen."
