No. 15 Oklahoma State looking to rebound at Texas Tech

No. 15 Oklahoma State looking to rebound at Texas Tech”

Players say Tech now has faith in its ability to win games at the end, as it did on the road at Houston, ending the Cougars' 16-game win streak.

"Tech is similar to what they have been", Gundy said during his weekly press conference. This will be the first game of the 2017 season where the Red Raiders have played in front of a sold-out home crowd.

"That's what we've been searching for and that's why I've been so excited to have Coach Gibbs here for his third year, trying to have some of that consistency, develop a culture, develop an identity", Kingsbury said Monday.

"To me, the difference is a year ago you would notice that [even though] people wouldn't say it", Washington said, "but you could just tell by people's body language and the way they were talking with each other that they didn't have a lot of faith in us when it did come to the close game and we needed a stop or two".

The game will test Texas Tech's resurgent defense, one of the key reasons the Red Raiders rank second nationally in turnover margin. "Hopefully that continues to pay off". That goes back to 2007, when Oklahoma State won, 49-45.

The Cowboys start the season with a road series against Texas State on February 16-18.

Despite Oklahoma State's loss to the Horned Frogs last week, Kingsbury can see that the Cowboys still have the potential to shake his team's newfound confidence on defense.

"We'll do our best to play hard and put on a good show", Kingsbury said. "We'll have our hands full. It will take everything we have to play well enough to play this Saturday, so I think that helps them focus". Considering the result from the 2016 game, Texas Tech will not forget how that ended anytime soon.

"We know every time we suit up, we're going to playing against some of the better teams in the country, and that's how we like it", OSU coach Josh Holliday said. Viewed as a dark horse College Football Playoff contender just a week ago before being upset by TCU, Oklahoma State still can achieve its goals if it can avoid another Big 12 loss.

For Texas Tech, the receiver to watch is Keke Coutee, who has 28 receptions for 446 yards and four touchdowns through three games. (90 Completions, 1533 yards, 13 touchdowns, and is ranked 2nd for passing yards in the country.) His favorite wide receiver (James Washington) has some serious breakaway speed, this season he averages 27.4-yards per catch.

"People outside the program go insane when we have big wins and start making hotel reservations for this or that", Gundy said.
