We can play the hell out of batting practice. Once we figured out Tech was minus their E. J. Holub (Brooks-#1) war-hog we boxed their ears for close to half a hundred. It's fun when everyday is a holiday and every meal is a banquet.
The Longhorn defense was gashed in the first half by the Red Raiders, conceding touchdowns on Tech's first two offensive drives and 21 points in the first half overall. Fortunately, a Jett Duffey unforced wet ball fumble while Tech was driving for another score (Bimage recovered on the UT26) bailed out Orlando and the Longhorn defense from potential halftime crisis mode. Duffey also missed an open receiver in the end zone and didn't spy an uncovered Tech receiver before the snap later near the goal line. No Longhorn defender was within twenty yards. Fortunately, Texas got the time out before Duffey noticed.
After each team’s first two drives, Texas Tech led Texas 14-0. It was the second time this season the Longhorns trailed by two scores in the opening quarter at home, and like the previous occasion versus Kansas State, Texas recovered and earned a victory to clinch its third consecutive winning season.
