Texas Tech will take on New Mexico, Saturday at 6 p.m. at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock.
In case you haven't been glued to RedRaiderSports.com all week, here is what has happened in the week leading up to the game:
*Texas Tech has the fourth-best total defense in the country after holding Texas State to 270 yards last week and it held Northwestern State to 64 total offensive yards.
*New Mexico runs a similar option game as Texas State. These two teams are providing great preparation for when Tech returns to action against Iowa State's zone-read option after a bye week this upcoming week.
*Tech had a few plays defensive coordinator Art Kaufman would like to have back so watch for the Red Raiders to try to play a complete game defending the option.
Bullitt had a great game defending the option. Watch for him against New Mexico's option attack. He's taking great angles and is pursuing very well.
Quote of the Week
"I think most of it, we have experience in some spots. We have some depth, but I think it's confidence. You play defense, number one. You just get lined up to understand your responsibility you can play a lot harder. We have more speed, but we're using our speed a lot more than what we did last year because there is less confusion."
