Alan Bowman, the Texas Tech freshman, was rushed to a local hospital on Saturday night to investigate a "recurrence" of a partially collapsed lung, the Red Raiders said.
Bowman, who initially suffered injury to West Virginia on September 29, denied the Red Raiders a halftime lead of 31-28 ahead of seventh place Oklahoma, but was hit by Sooner's linebacker Curtis Bolton late in the second quarter. He could not start the second half.
Head coach Kliff Kingsbury said Bowman had trouble warming up before the start of the second half. Bowman then retired to the locker room with Texas Tech gym teachers and medical staff.
Kingsbury dismissed initial reports that Bowman had been injured when he was hit in the head with a football during the warm-up. He said, "It was not his head."
Following the coach's press conference, Texas Tech issued a statement stating that Bowman had been transported to Lubbock's Covenant Medical "to see a repeat of his previous injury (partially collapsed lung) in the West Virginia game occurred monitoring. "
Jett Duffey took over Bowman's position at quarterback. After a slow start, the student threw two touchdown passes and ran for another point, which almost resulted in Texas Tech.
The Sooners won 51-46.
