LUBBOCK, Texas – Kliff Kingsbury has insisted since taking over at Texas Tech that the Red Raiders will score points using whatever opponents give them.
Judging from the numbers, that means there will be plenty of passing when Texas State visits No. 25 Texas Tech on Saturday night.
The Bobcats have the best team in the country in stopping the run, allowing just 43 yards rushing in their two wins. Against the pass? Not so much. Texas State has allowed 279 yards passing per game.
Quarterback Baker Mayfield will start for the Red Raiders (3-0). The freshman walk-on injured his left leg in the fourth quarter against TCU. His backup, Davis Webb, came in and threw a 19-yard pass to Bradley Marquez with under 4 minutes remaining to break a 10-all.
