The Texas Tech/Oklahoma Game in GIFS (because it was awesome)

People had high hopes for the Texas Tech Red Raiders when Kliff Kingsbury, but they were not expected to be a contender in the Big 12 and a top 15 team. Kingsbury as them flying high though and the sky appears to to be the limit. This week the Red Raiders will be hosting the Oklahoma State Cowboys. As the No. 18 team in the nation they are going to be far from a pushover,...

New USA Today Coaches’ Poll Released, Miami And Texas Tech Plummet

Kliff Kingsbury and the Red Raiders continue to slip. Week 10 was a strange one in college football — what the schedule lacked in premier matchups it made up for in wacky finishes.

Living a Life of Illusion?

Not so very long ago the Texas Tech Red Raiders were undefeated and ranked in the nation’s top 10. Tech was considered one of college football’s great rags-to-riches stories. But the Red Raiders are no longer 7-0 and ranked in the top 10. They are no longer contenders for the Big 12 championship, and it is almost certain that they will drop out of the top 25.

OSU-Texas Tech Photo Gallery-2

Oklahoma State posted an impressive 52-34 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday night as the 18th-ranked Cowboys dominated in all three phases of the game (offense, defense and special teams). Here are some photos from John Weast from Getty Sports Images.

Tech’s Run Defense Unraveling

The Red Raider defense has given up 741 on the ground the past three games and are 1-2 over that stretch. Texas Tech started the season strong against the run, but it is becoming glaringly obvious that Texas Tech’s run defense is no longer a team strength, but rather, has become Tech’s primary liability. The question is why has the rush defense fallen off so quickly?

Special Teams Struggle

Texas Tech, ranked No. 15 in the BCS standings, committed three turnovers and allowed 281 rushing yards Saturday night against the No. 18 Oklahoma State Cowboys. Despite those numbers, Texas Tech could have won the game. The special teams and field possession is what ultimately did the Red Raiders in.

Three Essential Keys

Texas Tech must bow up and slow Oklahoma State's rushing game, jump out to an early lead and most importantly, win the turnover battle to break the Cowboys' four-game win streak over the Red Raiders.
