5. Texas Tech Defense has regressed

The Red Raider defense is historically putrid. They were playing well early in the season then they ran into buzz saw that is the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The defense stifled West Virginia in first half of their game with the Mountaineers. But in the second half they were nowhere to be found. Then when Iowa State came to town the defense was a virtual no-show from start to finish.

It appears that the Red Raiders defense has reverted to its former self. That is not good news with a trip to Norman this week. The Sooners are going to put a lot of points and yardage on the Texas Tech defense this week.

If you are a Red Raider fan it would be best to avert your eyes when Oklahoma is on offense. It is not going to be a pretty sight. Saturday night in Norman the Saturday before Halloween is going to be frightful time for the Red Raiders.
