Player News
12/30/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Texas Tech DE Kerry Hyder is the leader up front for the Red Raiders, with 11.5 tackles for loss, but the team's sack total is only at 21. Hyder and LB Will Smith (five sacks) need to make ASU QB Taylor Kelly uncomfortable; if not, his accuracy will be deadly. - The Sports Xchange
