Suddenly, Texas Tech has a decision to make at cornerback

One of Texas Tech’s bright spots in the comeback victory Saturday was the play of cornerback Derrick Mays, who was terrific after he replaced struggling starter Olaoluwa Falemi midway through the third quarter.

Falemi was flagged three times for pass-interference penalties, the last nullifying an interception by teammate Austin Stewart. The series after that, Bruce Jones moved from boundary (tight-side) cornerback to Falemi’s spot at field (wide-side) cornerback, and Mays took Jones’ spot.

While many people were wondering if Texas Tech could turn a favorable early schedule into a 7-0 start, the answer is yes. Texas Tech stayed unbeaten with a 37-27 win Saturday at West Virginia.

Tech's defensive turnaround Saturday: How much was Xs and Os and how much was better execution?

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury credited defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt for making sound adjustments on the fly during the Red Raiders’ 37-27 victory Saturday at West Virginia.

Tech went from giving up 27 points in five possessions in the second and third quarters to giving up one first down in the last five series of the game. That gave the offense a chance to rally from a 27-16 deficit.

So how much did Wallerstedt chalk up to tactical changes and how much to the players simply executing calls better?

Texas Tech's Nov. 2 home game against Oklahoma State has been set for a 6 p.m. kickoff at Jones AT&T Stadium. The game between the No. 10 Red Raiders and No. 19 Cowboys will be broadcast by Fox (Suddenlink channel 10). Check back with lubbockonline.
