Reliable defense, playmakers helping team through QB uncertainty
LAWRENCE, Kan. — It wouldn’t be Texas Tech football, the 2013 version, if Kliff Kingsbury didn’t know from one week to the next who would play quarterback.
Fortunately for the Red Raiders’ coach, he has an array of playmakers on offense and a defense that’s delivered solid performances every week. No. 20 Tech beat Kansas 54-16 Saturday, the down side being freshman quarterback Baker Mayfield’s exit with a knee injury.
That sets up another week of uncertainty at quarterback as Tech (5-0, 2-0 in the Big 12) gets ready to host Iowa State (1-3, 0-1) at 11 a.m. Saturday.
