1. Davis Webb's health: Sure, Kliff Kingsbury seems to work magic with freshman quarterbacks. David Piland. Johnny Manziel. Webb. Baker Mayfield.
He asked in January to play receiver and was turned down. Since then, he's dedicated himself to becoming the best safety he can be, with positive results.
The college football world generally can count on Texas Tech winning as many or more games than it loses. That's been the case 20 times in the last 21 years.
