LUBBOCK, Texas -

After injuring his left shoulder during Saturday night's 28-14 loss to Arizona in Tucson, Texas Tech quarterback Alan Bowman is expected to be sidelined for the next 6-8 weeks. 

The sophomore QB returned to the game after a quick trip to the locker room and ended up leading the Red Raiders on a touchdown drive to give them a 14-13 lead late in the quarter. On the season, Bowman has thrown for 1,024 yards, 6 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. 

Junior Jett Duffey or Rice grad transfer Jackson Tyner will take over the starting job for the Red Raiders. They have a bye this week, followed by a matchup with the Oklahoma Sooners in Norman at 11 AM on Saturday, September 28th.

Texas Tech Athletics released the following statement Monday: 

Texas Tech head coach Matt Wells announced Monday afternoon that sophomore quarterback Alan Bowman will miss several weeks due to a shoulder injury suffered this past Saturday night against Arizona.

Bowman threw for 307 passing yards versus the Wildcats, bringing his season total to 1,020, which leads the Big 12 and ranks fourth in the FBS. Bowman was also the nation’s leader in completions per game after averaging 33.7 through the first three weeks of the season.

The Red Raiders are off this week before opening Big 12 play on Sept. 28 at Oklahoma.
