Arkansas ran up and down the field against Texas Tech as the Texas Tech defense was never able to stop the Razorback offense.

Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

This was ugly. Real ugly.

Arkansas simply had their way with Texas Tech and it never appeared to be all that close, especially in the second half of the game.  Arkansas had sustained drives through most, of the game, and aside from a couple of early turnovers, Arkansas ran and ran and ran the ball.  The defense was abysmal for Texas Tech and it really didn't matter who was in the game, and which defender was there.  Every player missed tackles.

Not only that, the Texas Tech offense simply sputtered in the second half, whether they were able to really get on the field or not, the offense must be better and that largely falls in the lap of QB Davis Webb, who was uneven, to say the least.  Webb had his second rough outing in a row.  I'm saving a good portion of this for tomorrow, but here's the deal with Webb.  He won't get any better until he learns to throw against an zone defense with seven or so defenders in the defensive backfield.  Webb is not making good decisions right now and it's downright tough to watch.

Texas Tech has a bye coming up this week and they'll need every available practice to get better.
