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

[1]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.
