A week ago Texas Tech went toe-to-toe with TCU. This week the Red Raiders are struggling to keep pace with No. 5 Baylor. After one half of play in Arlington, Baylor has already scored 42 points and has put together over 400 yards of offense. As a result, Baylor leads Texas Tech 49-21.
Baylor quarterback Seth Russell has thrown for 251 yards and three touchdowns and run for 77 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Baylor’s Shock Linwood leads all players with 169 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Jay Lee already has 120 receiving yards and Corey Coleman caught two of Russell’s touchdown passes to go with his 89 receiving yards.
Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes has had his moments as well, with 255 passing yards and three touchdowns in the first half. But Texas Tech simply has not been able to keep going on offense the way Baylor has.
Look for Baylor to keep its foot on the gas in the second half, which means even more big numbers in the box score for the offensive players.
