Texas Tech QB Jett Duffey wins the prestigious Fitzpatrick/Winston Award for the Most Outstanding Offensive Production Paired With Multiple Boneheaded Turnovers In The Red Zone. The preseason 3rd string QB for the Red Raiders amassed 524 yards of offense (444 throwing, 80 rushing) while also coughing up the ball three times deep inside the Texas Longhorn 19 yard line.

The Longhorns put up 41 points in Lubbock despite surrendering a season worst 5 sacks; Sam Ehlinger set the Big 12 record for consecutive attempts without an interception, further cementing himself as a damn good Longhorn QB and a bona fide winner who has grown more than any player in the program; the staff offset a couple of uninspired second half booth series with some terrific play calls and big picture decisions; and LJH and Duvernay combined for four touchdowns catches, mercilessly exploiting IT’s pre-game identified weakness of Tech’s cornerback play.

Shortly after Texas came up short against the West Virginia Mountaineers, the team that we all thought was going to provide the real problem for Texas played in primetime against the Sooners. Texas Tech gave Oklahoma their best shot, picking off Kyler Murray twice to start the game and managing to get 46 points on the board only to come up short in a 51-46 defeat.

The 5-4 Red Raiders have had a competitive season (their three Big 12 losses are all by 9 points or less to ISU, OU and WVU and their non conference opening loss to Ole Miss was when Bowman was still a pup) peppered with some bad streaks of injury luck. Texas represents an opportunity for them to secure bowl eligibility and for Kliff Kingsbury to secure yet another job security win over Texas.
