College Football Week 12: #23 Texas Tech At Oklahoma St.

  • Coaching
    Tommy Tuberville had to answer for his sideline antics Saturday—he smacked the headset and hat off a graduate assistant’s head. His excuse was lame, but it hasn’t seemed like the story has gotten big enough to be a distraction.
    People knew Mike Gundy’s team would take a step back this season with the departures of key players like Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon. A 4-2 Big 12 record is nothing to be ashamed of.
  • Offense
    The offense has hit a bit of a rough patch lately—the Red Raiders scored just 27 in regulation against lowly Kansas last week. This team still has a dangerous passing attack.
    Okie State—which doesn’t know who will start at quarterback on Saturday— may mix in more run plays than usual against a Texas Tech defense that has been pretty good against the pass.
  • Defense
    Only three teams in the country have forced fewer turnovers than Texas Tech, a big reason this defense has struggled to contain the better offenses it has faced.
    The Cowboys don’t force many turnovers but have been improving since the first half of the season.
  • Special Teams
    Texas Tech’s special teams have been average across the board this season.
    Justin Gilbert returned a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown, the Cowboys’ second kick return for a score this year.
RESULTS
These teams are very similar, but Oklahoma State has been playing much better than Texas Tech has lately and has the benefit of playing at home. -Andrew Kahn, College Football Contributor
