Hey, hey, hey!

Have you not signed up for the SBNation FanPulse yet? It’s THE best poll available because it was created by fans like you and is voted on by fans like you! Join the growing movement among Red Raider fans by signing up for the FanPulse here and being included in the national vote every weekend. Let’s take a look at college football’s top 25 in week 11 according to the fans:

biggest winners:

Baylor, for rising to no. 6 from no. 10 after surviving TCU in triple overtime, 29-23.

Minnesota, for shooting up to no. 7 from no. 13 after handling Penn State, 31-26

biggest losers:

• Wake Forest, for dropping from no. 18 to no. 23 after losing to Virginia Tech, 36-17

• we’ll say Alabama, who only dropped from no. 2 to no. 4 after losing to LSU, 46-41, but proved that they might not be the team to be in the CFP this year.

Texas Tech fan confidence (football):

Looking back this has been a wild ride. The Arizona loss had near the same effect on fans as the Kansas loss did, albeit Arizona being a little steeper. Yet since then, with the passing of time over a bye-week and a win against West Virginia in Morgantown, Red Raiders are finding more hope in the program going forward. This weekend, against TCU, Wells will have a chance to put Texas Tech on the cusp of bowl eligibility as well as to notch another important win at home.

Texas Tech fan confidence (basketball):

Well it’s indisputable: Texas Tech basketball is hype-city. Although we’ve played much lower-tiered teams, we should know from Kentucky’s latest blunder against Evansville that no opponent is undeserving of their due respect. Coach Beard has proven alongside of a lethal lineup that Texas Tech basketball is here to play this season.
