Football players, believe it or not, make mistakes on the field. Drops, fumbles, and interceptions happen — it’s part of the game. But some mistakes are pretty inexcusable, and we just saw one of them.
In a tightly-contested game between the Horned Frogs and Red Raiders, TTU’s DeAndre Washington scored what was potentially the game-winning touchdown off a 16-yard pass from Davis Webb. However, Washington began celebrating the score prematurely and actually dropped the ball before crossing the goal-line. Here’s a video:
Texas Tech had an excessive celebration penalty after the “score” as well, so the Red Raiders had to try to score again from the 16-yard-line. Fortunately for them, they were able to put the ball in the endzone, and keep it there, for the 17-10 lead.
But why do we continue to see this happen? It occurred in last week’s NFL opener, and the Honey Badger notoriously did it in the 2011 SEC Championship game — players need to focus on doing things the right way instead of...
BEST OF MAXIM
TCU and Texas Tech were treated to a little surprise in the third quarter of their game in Lubbock.
A fox was seen running along the sidelines behind TCU's bench, and the poor animal looked scared out of his mind.
Eventually, the fox was captured, but not before TCU missed a much needed field goal while the shenanigans were going on. One guess as to who set the fox loose!...
Ah, good ol’ Bangin’ Bertha. A Texas Tech tradition unlike any other – one lucky student gets to ring the bell and look like they’re intensely beating off on a football field in front of the entire nation. This is what dreams are made of.
As you can see from the GIF above, the newest Texas Tech bell-ringer got victimized by a bad ESPN camera angle last night. Though it was...
Texas Tech has a tradition of ringing a cowbell bell during its games, and things were no different during Thursday’s Texas Tech-TCU matchup. Unfortunately for the bell ringer, he’ll now be famous for all the wrong reasons.
The guy has clearly learned from the best at Tech:
Texas Tech would end up winning, 20-10.
Oh man. Among the many traditions that Texas Tech University maintains, the long-practiced bell-ringing that occurs during Red Raiders home football games at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock may be the most awkwardly and unintentionally hilarious. And on Thursday night, as the Red Raiders hosted the TCU Horned Frogs, ESPN cameras caught the bell-ringer guy […]The post Texas...
This Texas Tech girl rages against the call, dropping an f-bomb on national TV, and immediately regrets it afterwards.
Texas Tech running back DeAndre Washington unintentionally did his best impression of Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan during Thursday's game against No. 24 TCU.
Watch as Washington botches an easy touchdown in the fourth quarter by letting go of the football right before he crosses the end zone. Fortunately, Washington's mental miscue didn't wind up costing...

Three Texas Tech Red Raider girls went hard when the beat to Radioactive dropped during a referee review in Thursday night's TCU game.
Texas Tech upset No. 24 TCU on Thursday night at Jones AT&T Stadium, marking the first Big 12 Conference victory for Kliff Kingsbury.
Texas Tech's traditional bell-ringer was as enthusiastic as ever after the Red Raiders had built a 10-0 lead against TCU.
Congratulations, Texas Tech, you beat the No. 24-ranked team in the country in TCU. It's a good win, but not even remotely field-rush worthy.
Maybe I have to play football at a high level to fully understand this, but I really can’t wrap my brain around how players keep dropping the ball before they cross the goal line. The latest inexplicable brain toot came from Texas Tech running back DeAndre Washington in a 20-10 win over TCU on Thursday […]
Texas Tech receiver Eric Ward is the Big 12 leader with 16 receptions, and he'll go head to head with one of the Big 12's best defenses tonight when the Red Raiders host TCU in an early season conference tilt. Fox Sports Southwest caught up with Ward before this week's game to talk about a variety of subjects.
You're leading the Big 12 in receptions, but how would...

Josh Moore knew it was only a matter of time until he landed his first Division 1 offer, but he didn’t expect it to come from The Lone Star State. The Olathe (KS) North junior picked up his first offer this week from Texas Tech. Go Inside as Moore talks about the Red Raiders…
