Red Raiders finished last in run defense, but pass rush a priority, too
Sixth in a series previewing Texas Tech spring football practice, which is scheduled to begin Friday.
As Texas Tech defensive ends coach Robert Prunty reviewed game video from last season, one thing jumped out at him.
“We had close to 15 sacks that we left on the field that we would’ve got had we been a step quicker,” Prunty said. “We’ve got to make sure we become better at rushing the passer.”
The Red Raiders finished 2011 ranked 120th in rushing defense, 113th in pass-efficiency defense and tied for 112th with only five interceptions.
