Texas Tech is having an interesting season.
They opened up 4-0. They had two fairly easy openers vs. Texas State and then at New Mexico followed by a close game vs. Nevada and then they struggled a little but still beat Kansas by 11. 4-0 at that point.
They then lost two in a row at home 45-40 against A&M and 41-34 against Kansas State (a game they were winning at half and in all the way). 4-2 at this point.
Saturday October 22 they went to Norman to take on undefeated Oklahoma. Tech brought the wood and opened up a 24-7 lead at halftime and was up 41-24 with 7 minutes to play and they held on to win 41-38. 5-2 and have to feel good about themselves....
Iowa State came into Lubbock the following weekend and just unloaded on Tech 41-7; and Tech went to Austin last weekend and took a beating again 52-20. Thus, entering today's game they were 5-4.
Today isn't going to help. Before halftime in Stillwater, Oklahoma State is beating Texas Tech 49-0. And thus, after 10 games, Tech will stand 5-5.
That defeat of Oklahoma looks simply amazing right now. OU's loss to Tech is their only one on the season and they have beat up on everyone else, including a near 40 point win over Texas, 41 over Kansas State, 16 over Texas A&M, etc...
In the 10 seasons Tubs was the head coach at Auburn his team only allowed 40 or more points 3 times. They have now allowed 40 or more in 5 games this season.
Head scratcher of a season for Tech.
