Jeff Woody was upgraded to probable, according to injury report provided by He has been active in all three games on the season, however he’s just touch the ball five total times for 11 yards.

Earlier this week, reports had Woody ranging from doubtful to questionable. It’s a huge addition for a running attack that could be up against a much tougher test than a season ago. Right now, Texas Tech is ranked 11th in rushing defense.

That number may not be as inflated as you think. New Mexico’s offense is built to run the ball and control the clock. They couldn’t do that against the Red Raiders, being held to just 84 yards on 35 attempts.
