While Texas Tech may have lost its first game of the season this past Saturday at Oklahoma, the Red Raiders’ shot at a Big 12 championship is still very much alive. But they’ll most likely need to win the rest of their games – the first of which is a big matchup with Oklahoma State at home on November 2nd – to have any chance. Coach Kliff Kingsbury is doing his best to motivate his players by reminding them of how the past two meetings between the two schools have gone. Kliff Kingsbury had “98″ put up around the #TexasTech locker room. That’s margin OSU has beaten Tech last two years: 66-6 and 59-21. — Don Williams (@AJ_DonWilliams) October 28, 2013 “I just wanted to make sure they knew that. Hopefully, they have some pride in themselves.” – Kingsbury about hanging the 98 signs — Jarret Johnson (@JohnsonJarret) October 28, 2013 There’s nothing like reminding people of their past failures to provide motivation. Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy provided a funny response when asked about the tactic. Gundy in Kingsbury putting “98″ in TTU locker room: “Hopefully it doesn’t work for him.” — Cody Stavenhagen (@CodyStavenhagen) October 28, 2013 Something tells me this year’s game will be a little closer than the past few.
