Early on, it seems that Texas Tech's defense has made some strides in their first two games of 2012.
After surrendering 39 points per game last season (ranking 117th in the country) the Red Raiders have given up only one touchdown in their two games against Northwestern State and Texas State.
Tommy Tuberville noted that he's got to keep that confidence in check with their conference opener right around the corner.
"When you're winning, that’s when you want to be as negative as you can in terms of teaching, and film, showing all the little things to get better."
Tuberville and Texas Tech take on New Mexico this weekend and then have week off before starting their conference schedule at Iowa State, and then back to back home games against Oklahoma and West Virginia.
