Texas Tech D Needs To Bring A Game Vs No. 5 WVa

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) If Texas Tech thought Oklahoma was a good test for its revitalized defense, one has to wonder what the Red Raiders will do against No. 5 West Virginia.

Texas Tech's defense allowed 41 points through three quarters in a home loss to the Sooners last weekend just two points shy of what it had allowed to everyone else combined in the first four games of the season.

Now the nation's No. 2 defense will face Mountaineers quarterback Geno Smith, running back Andrew Buie, and two of the best receivers in the country, Stedman Bailey and Tavon Austin.

The Red Raiders (4-1, 1-1 Big 12) gave up more points than OU had averaged coming into the game (37 points). West Virginia (5-0, 2-0) is averaging 52 points.
