Texas Tech signs 6 receivers to help in red-zone situations

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Kliff Kingsbury didn't get a quarterback this year but the two remaining signal-callers will have taller receivers as targets next season. The Red Raiders weren't very efficient in the red zone last season, so the height of the six receivers Wednesday in the signing class should help. The group is heavy on Texas players, with 18 of the 20 players hailing from...

Big 12 thoughts: Week 14

Here's a few thoughts on an action-packed day in the Big 12, complete with a comeback and one near-comeback. TCU (and the entire Big 12) had a wonderful Saturday. You can see my thoughts on TCU's 48-10 win over Texas right here, but the Frogs sat at home on Saturday and watched Ole Miss beat No. 4 Mississippi State and Baylor struggle to hang on against Texas Tech. No one likes to...

Texas Tech finds its quarterback of future in near-upset of Baylor

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Nobody likes moral victories, but Texas Tech got an impressive one in a 48-46 loss to No. 7 Baylor on Saturday.  Instead of getting style points like many expected, the Bears survived a fourth quarter scare from the Red Raiders without quarterback Bryce Petty, who suffered a "minor concussion" in the third quarter.  Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw...

Texas Tech, Iowa State desperate for a win

AMES, Iowa (AP) Texas Tech's visit to Iowa State on Saturday will be its furthest trip north in November in 52 years. It'll be an especially chilly afternoon for the Red Raiders if they can't get rolling against the Cyclones. Texas Tech (3-7, 1-6 Big 12) has lost three straight, and its only league win came against Kansas. Iowa State is in even worse shape. The Cyclones (2-7, 0...

Texas knocks out Texas Tech with huge hit on quarterback

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech didn't give up 80 points this week, but another loss to a struggling Texas team and losing another quarterback is just as deflating.  A Longhorns' defense delievered another huge blow to an already depleted Red Raider offense in a 34-13 win in Lubbock on Saturday night.  Texas Tech starting quarterback Davis Webb was already out with an ankle injury...

Texas, Texas Tech look to rebound

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Texas and Texas Tech are far removed from 2008. The teams met on Nov. 1 that year - like Saturday's game - when the Longhorns were the country's top-ranked team and the Red Raiders were No. 6. Texas Tech fans remember the winning touchdown pass in the closing seconds as if it was yesterday. The pass from Graham Harrell to Michael Crabtree took the Red Raiders...

Records fall as TCU hangs 82 on Texas Tech

FORT WORTH, Texas - Just imagine the kind of game the TCU Horned Frogs could have had if head coach Gary Patterson thought his team played well Saturday. All the Frogs did despite that was score a school and Big 12 record 82 points in an 82-27 throttling of Texas Tech. The lopsided win for the 10th-ranked Frogs (6-1, 3-1 in the Big 12) made a huge national statement four days before...

Texas Tech chases 1st Big 12 win vs. West Virginia

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Texas Tech's season thus far has a considerably different feel than last year. About this time last season, the Red Raiders were approaching a No. 10 ranking after going 7-0. When it plays West Virginia on Saturday, Texas Tech will be trying to avoid starting conference play with three straight losses for the first since 1990. The Mountaineers (3-2, 1-1) are...

No. 23 K-State ready for Texas Tech air attack

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) Two weeks ago, Kansas State stacked up across the line of scrimmage, daring Auburn to run. When the Tigers did, the Wildcats promptly bottled them up. Last week against UTEP, they did the same thing against Aaron Jones, one of the nation's top rushers. By the time the game ended, Jones had 47 yards on 19 carries. This week? Well, a little different challenge...

Observations from OSU's 45-35 win over Texas Tech

Just a good, old-fashioned 80-point game in Big 12 play. OSU's 45-35 win over Texas Tech wasn't pretty, but it was fun.  It was hard to watch Davis Webb in the fourth quarter. Webb was ready to return from an injury to his left shoulder and looked crushed when Texas Tech's doctors refused to let him play. It seems likely he suffered a dislocated shoulder and unless further tests...
