Texas Tech Hopes to Rebound vs Iowa St after 2-Game Skid
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech looks to rebound from back-to-back losses to top-five teams when the Red Raiders take on Iowa State on Saturday.
The Cyclones are aiming for a second Big 12 road win after beating Kansas last week.
Texas Tech coach Kliff Kinsgbury sees a much improved Iowa State (2-2, 1-0) team led by quarterback Sam Richardson. The Red Raiders are No. 124th in the nation — fourth from the bottom — in total defense, giving up 581 yards per game.
Texas Tech (3-2, 0-2 Big 12), which leads the nation in passing offense and ranked third in total offense, lost to then-No. 3 TCU two weeks ago and fell to then-No. 5 Baylor last week.
The Cyclones hope a new defensive scheme will help stifle the Red Raiders.
