Texas Tech has yet to win on the road this year, falling to Texas and then Houston in week four, which was everyone’s darling early in the season, but as you look at Tech’s offense, defensive coordinator Carl Pelini says you have to pay more attention to their running game. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still the spread offense and they pass the ball well. It will be a challenge for Bo Pelini finding the right combination of defensive backs.
It was last year’s game at Tech where the Huskers lost 37-31 that I think really turned this team around, especially the defense into believing they could compete in the Big 12. Pelini expects his defensive secondary to play well again this year.
