A reeling Texas Longhorns rush defense will have to face a running quarterback on Saturday, as Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach Kliff Kingsbury announced that redshirt sophomore Jett Duffey will start on Saturday in Lubbock in place of freshman Alan Bowman, according to Longhorn Network’s Alex Loeb.
Duffey fell just short of leading Texas Tech over Oklahoma last weekend at Jones AT&T Stadium after Bowman took a shot to the ribs in the first half and was unable to complete warmups during halftime.
The standout freshman was eventually taken to the hospital because he’d suffered a reoccurrence of the partially collapsed lung originally sustained against West Virginia in late September. Bowman rejoined team activities on Thursday following his release from the hospital.
