Texas Tech kick returners could have big day against Longhorns
When Tech runs
The Red Raiders have one of the best rushing attacks in the nation — when they use it. Texas Tech is No. 75 in the FBS on yards per game, but are 26th in yards per carry. Texas, surprisingly, only has the 81st rushing defense in the country. That means, Tech should hit the ground early and try to control the clock and keep the ball out of the Longhorns hands. It is a strategy that goes against all of Texas Tech’s recent history, but with DeAndre Washington and Justin Stockton shouldering the load, it might just work.
