Tech injuries update: Carpenter, Davis 'day-to-day," Kingsbury says

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury on Monday said guard Beau Carpenter and inside receiver Jordan Davis are “day-to-day”, Carpenter with an ankle sprain and Davis with a tweaked hamstring. He said safety Tre Porter, who came out of the game late on Friday, was “just tired” and is fine for this week.

Carpenter was in a walking boot, then on crutches as he went to the locker room after the game Friday.

Texas Tech quarterback Baker Mayfield was named the Big 12 Conference offensive player of the week Monday for his performance in the Red Raiders' 41-23 victory Friday at SMU.

Red-zone defense helps Wallerstedt's crew offset 490-yard yield

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury has said several times that the proliferation of spread-passing offenses makes giving up yards inevitable, so his goal is to force turnovers and limit teams to field goals.

Tech came up with no turnovers Friday, but tough red-zone defense was key to the team’s 41-23 victory Friday at SMU.

“At times, we were really stingy,” defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt said Monday, “especially in the red zone. Our guys were bowing their neck and playing aggressive and not giving up touchdowns.”

The television channel for Texas Tech football's home opener has changed. Originally scheduled for Fox College Sports, the game will now be shown on Fox Sports Net with a kickoff set for 6 p.m.
