College Football Week 12: #23 Texas Tech At Oklahoma St.
|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.||Coaching||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.|
|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.||Offense||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.|
|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.||Defense||The Cowboys don’t force many turnovers but have been improving since the first half of the season.|
|Texas Tech’s special teams have been average across the board this season.||Special Teams||Justin Gilbert returned a kickoff 96 yards for a touchdown, the Cowboys’ second kick return for a score this year.|
