When Texas Tech runs the ball
Texas Tech is coming off its worst rushing performance of the season, gaining just 30 yards on the ground in a 52-20 loss to Texas in Austin. Aaron Crawford and DeAndre Washington combined for 22 yards, and Kenny Williams led the Red Raiders with 25. Their fortunes figure to improve against the nation’s 99th-ranked rush defense. Oklahoma State surrenders an average of 195.6 yards per game and 28.6 points. Texas Tech will also need some improvement from the offensive line, though, which did little to develop the running game last week.
