UPDATE: Texas Tech released a statement on Alan Bowman’s condition after the game.

“Alan Bowman has been transported to Covenant Medical Center to be evaluated for a re-occurrence of his previous injury (partially collapsed lung) that occurred in the West Virginia game. He will be held overnight for observation.”

His status for next week is not yet known, but it’s looking doubtful.


Alan Bowman lead the Red Raiders to a 31-28 lead at the half, but when Texas Tech returned to the field after the break, they were noticeably absent their starting quarterback.

Bowman had come out for warm ups before the start of the second half, but went back to the locker room visibly frustrated and he will not return to the game.

Reports are that Bowman is suffering a breathing problem after taking a hit in the first half. It’s particularly concerning as Bowman suffered a collapsed lung earlier in the season.

The freshman quarterback has brought a spark to the Texas Tech offense in recent weeks, and in the first half, Bowman racked up 227 yards and two touchdowns by completing 21 of his 26 throws.

Jett Duffey took over the offense to start the third quarter, and season-starter McLane Carter, who is battling a high ankle sprain, has been seen warming up on the sidelines. Through the third quarter, Duffey is three for eight, for 57 yards and and a score. He’s also picked up 12 yards with his legs. Texas Tech currently trails Oklahoma 35-34.
