The Red Raiders will have their resolve tested with a daunting stretch that begins Saturday against No. 5 West Virginia
Texas Tech players had set a goal this season, safety D.J. Johnson said Saturday, of going undefeated.
Of course, given the talent of the Big 12 Conference, a setback like the Red Raiders’ 41-20 loss to Oklahoma seemed likely at some point.
The question now: Will Tech be able to better handle the impending adversity than it did a season ago?
“Last year, we broke down,” Johnson said, “and some other teams may break down after a loss like this. For us, we will continue to get better.”
