Q. V.J., after a game like that against TCU, is it kind of one of those ones that you use the score to motivate you or was it such a bad day you want to throw it away and focus on the Longhorns?
V.J. FEHOKO: Yeah, I mean, watching the tape once, that was pretty much good enough for me. Disgusted, but it's something to learn from. The great thing about football is we can come in and we've got a big game this week, so we can pout our attention and our anger and our frustration towards that.
Q. What was the feeling like for you guys as players on Saturday walking off that field against TCU after they put up 82?
JARED KASTER: It was hard. Going in and having the week that we had and got prepared like we did, I think we had one of our best weeks in practice so far, and I mean, it was disappointing to come out losing like that at all.
Q: Have you spoken with Davis, and do you have kind of any update on how he's doing right now?
KLIFF KINGSBURY: I have not. I'll see him when he gets to practice, so we'll find kind of figure it out from there and see what he can do this week moving forward, but I would say as of now he's day‑to‑day.
Q: What is the injury? I know he had a bad left ankle for a couple weeks. Is it the same thing?
Kingsbury unsure of Webb's status; looking at starting Mahomes
Texas Tech’s season has always banked on Davis Webb’s development and health.
The Red Raiders have not benefited from either, though.
For the second time this season, Webb left the game with an injury, hurting his left ankle with 10:42 remaining in the third quarter of Saturday afternoon’s 82-27 loss at TCU.
Texas Tech's Nov. 1 home game against the University of Texas has been set for 6:30 p.m. kickoff Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium.
The game between the 3-5 Red Raiders and 3-5 Longhorns will be broadcast by Fox Sports 1, according to a social media post from Blayne Beal, Tech's associate director of athletics.
The game follows the Longhorn's 23-0 loss to Kansas State and the Red Raiders' 82-27 loss to Texas Christian Saturday.

FORT WORTH — Davis Webb once again left a game early because of an injury.
The Texas Tech quarterback hurt his left ankle with 10:42 remaining in the third quarter of Saturday afternoon’s 82-27 loss at TCU. He left the field on crutches minutes after Horned Frogs defensive end Mike Tuaua landed on Webb’s leg following a pass attempt.
FORT WORTH — Early Sunday, Kliff Kingsbury and his Texas Tech coaches will watch video of the disaster the day before at Amon Carter Stadium and see more than just a record-setting 82-27 loss to No. 10 TCU.
They ought to be scared at the sight of one of the worst fundamental teams in college football occupying their sideline and how it got this bad. Twenty-one games into Kingsbury’s head-coaching career, no one should have expected him to be trotting out a flawless, well-oiled machine.
He’s young. His team’s young.
But the Red Raiders are giving themselves no chance.
FORT WORTH — With 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter, the crowd was starting to trickle down to the last few stragglers.
The TCU fans who remained at Amon G. Carter Stadium must have wanted to see just how many points their team could score. The Texas Tech fans were nearly non-existent, a few speckles of red and black that had resigned to stay the rest of the game playing on their smartphones, trying to avoid seeing a final score that eventually reached 82-27.
The latest “embarrassment” was essentially over at halftime.
FORT WORTH — Texas Tech suffered a historic loss Saturday afternoon against TCU.
The Red Raiders set a number of records — including the most points allowed by a Big 12 team in conference play — in their 82-27 defeat to No. 10 TCU at Amon G. Carter Stadium. The 82 points set a school record, 16 points worse than the 66 they gave up to Oklahoma State and Baylor in 2011.
Tenth-ranked TCU’s defensive success thus far should surprise no one.
Dating back to last season, TCU’s last 13 opponents have combined to complete less than 50 percent of their passes while throwing 21 interceptions compared to 16 touchdowns.
An experienced secondary has seven of the team’s 11 interceptions. Cornerback Kevin White, along with safeties Chris Hackett and Derrick Kindred, have two each, while safety Sam Carter has one.
