Mayfield moving well, but not in uniform

Baker Mayfield wasn’t on the field with the other Texas Tech quarterbacks when practice ended Tuesday. As the workout concluded and media assembled for post-practice interviews, Michael Brewer, Davis Webb and Clayton Nicholas were in uniform with the quarterbacks group, but not Mayfield.

However, the Tech freshman was walking around afterward, his knee wrapped but moving with no apparent problems. It was the second day in a row he wasn't on the field at the end of practice.

Tech, Iowa State to match two of nation's top red-zone units

One of the reasons for Texas Tech’s 5-0 start this season has been the Red Raiders’ ability to rise up deep in their own end. Tech ranks tied for third in the nation in red-zone defense, yielding opponents two touchdowns and four field goals in 11 penetrations of the Red Raiders’ 20-yard line.

Apparently, that’s not by chance.

“One of our goals since the new coaching staff got in was, ‘sudden change — don’t let them score,’” defensive end Dartwan Bush said Tuesday. “That’s been our biggest concern other than takeaways.”
