Tech’s Henderson, Baylor duo honored by league

September 28, 2004


— Taurean Henderson of Texas Tech, and Baylor's Willie Andrews and Braelon Davis were named Big 12 Conference football players of the week Monday.

Henderson had 169 yards rushing, including a game-winning 70-yard touchdown run with less than three minutes remaining in Texas Tech's 31-30, come-from-behind win against Kansas.

He averaged 9.9 yards a carry and had a one-yard touchdown run in the third quarter. The performance makes him one of only two active Division I-A players with 1,000 receiving yards and 1,000 rushing yards in their careers. The other is Eric Roberts from Navy.

Andrews forced a fumble, had five unassisted tackles, including three for a loss and two sacks in Baylor's 37-14 win over North Texas. He also had six punt returns for 49 yards, including a 21-yard return.

Davis, a freshman, gave Baylor its first touchdown when he blocked a North Texas punt and recovered it in the end zone.
