Texas Tech Hold Mock WWE Match After Win

When you dominate in your opening game 69-17 you are allowed to blow off a little steam. The Texas Tech Red Raiders decided to throw themselves a little personal WWE Monday Night Raw show after practice on Labor Day. With one of the coaches (we think Strength and Conditioning coach Rusty Whitt) acting as the ring announcer a couple big time wrestlers (we’re guessing graduate assistants) came down from the stands.

Hunt, Mumphrey Make Case For Place On Texans Roster

One of the big battles of the evening was for the final running back spot. Tyler Ervin, the rookie 4th round pick, and free agent signee Lamar Miller are locks to have a spot on the roster. That leaves Alfred Blue, Akeem Hunt, Kenny Hilliard and Jonathan Grimes along with fullback Jay Prosch were fighting for the final few spots in the backfield.
