Three Texas Tech Players Won't Play In Bowl Game

Posted: 26 December, 2012

HOUSTON (AP) – A Texas Tech official says three Red Raiders won’t be playing against Minnesota in Friday’s Meineke Car Care Bowl because they violated team rules. He says Red Raiders starting defensive back Cornelius Douglas, Chris Payne, a linebacker who played mostly on Texas Tech’s special teams, and backup defensive tackle Leon Mackey won’t play in the bowl game. The 7-5 Red Raiders take on the 6-6 Gophers about three weeks after Tommy Tuberville unexpectedly left to take the head coaching position at Cincinnati.
