Post Game Thread | Texas Tech Red Raiders 54, Kansas Jayhawks 16

Texas Tech has a shaky first quarter, but is simply dominant the rest of the way in beating the Kansas Jayhawks, 54-16.

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

It was a bit of a rough first quarter with Kansas scoring early and the offense struggling early, but Texas Tech very much had control of this game after the first half.

Bring it Big Phil.


  • Baker Mayfield looked good after the first quarter.  I love that Kingsbury has faith to keep Mayfield in the game and not have an early hook, it would have been easy to do so.
  • The running game really took over in the second quarter and put Kansas on their heels.  It was dominant for an entire drive and Kansas never recovered.
  • As I am writing this, with about 2 minutes left in the game, Kansas has 266 yards.  We'll break this down from 1st quarter and the rest of the way, but, oh my, what a performance.
  • The defense produced 4 turnovers, just a fantastic effort.  They just dominate the play, stringing out a play in space and making things happen.  Really just a beautiful thing to watch.
  • Eric Ward, please be back, you're so good.
  • Michael Brewer. He wouldn't have played had he not been 100% healthy. This is nothing but good news if Mayfield's injury is serious. And I'm not sleeping on Davis Webb's contributions this game, he looked good too.


  • Mayfield getting his knee hit is a part of the game and I hate that.  The hit didn't look at all intentional, so this isn't a situation where I've got any hard feelings towards that player.  Just want to wish Mayfield a speedy recover.
  • The defense really struggled in the first quarter and that was disturbing, but obviously, there was a significant adjustment.
  • I'm trying to think of something else, but I got nothing.
