Texas Tech Football:
LAJ's Don Williams writes that Texas Tech is turning their attention toward Texas. Receiver Eric Morris says that the team knows they are capable playing with anyone in the country:
"We know if we really do what we’re capable of doing, then we can play with anybody in the country,’’ said Morris, who caught two touchdown passes Saturday. "We expect a tough matchup. We’re ready for anything right now. We’re hitting on all cylinders. It’s a great time in the year to be doing that, so look for us to have another big game next week.’’
Per LAJ's Don Williams, the Fiesta Bowl is considering Texas Tech, which is great that they're interested now, we just want them interested 4 weeks from now.
Kansas coach Mark Mangino was more direct, saying the Red Raiders administered "a good, old-fashioned butt-whooping" that proved Tech is more than just a prolific passing team.
"They mixed it up with the run and the pass," Mangino said. "They controlled the ball for long periods of time."
That is precisely the formula needed for a team hoping to knock off Texas. These Longhorns have defensive vulnerabilities, especially against an accurate passer with time on his hands.
But first-year Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp keeps his young secondary from being exposed with a stellar pass rush and by relying on a relentless, chains-moving offense that kept the ball for 33:28 in Saturday’s 28-24 victory over then-No. 7 Oklahoma State.
Lots more good thoughts there, so go read the whole thing.
