Texas Tech players and coaches couldn't avoid the painful memory when Iowa State dominated Texas Tech last year 52-38.
Texas Tech players and coaches couldn’t avoid the subject this week, not unless they were blindfolded. Reminders were everywhere they looked in their football building: On the video screen in the lobby. On sheets of paper taped to the doors.
This was the ugly message: “Oct. 2, 2010. Iowa State 52, Texas Tech 38. Remember.”
“Last year they embarrassed us up there,” Tech safety Brett Dewhurst said, “so we’ve got to get ready.”
