Preview, prediction, live stream vs. Texas Tech”

The Red Raiders have gotten off to a nice start to their season at 4-1 and No. 24 in the latest AP Top 25 poll, but a win over a team that has consistently beaten them would help put the Big 12 on notice.

Through five games, Texas Tech's defense has actually been somewhat of a strength as it has allowed a modest 5.5 yards per play.

Grier has generally kept the damage to a minimum, as his 16:4 touchdown-to-interception ratio looks good, but he has thrown one pick in four of five games this season, rather than making multiple mistakes over a one or two-game span.

West Virginia's offense has had no trouble moving the football this season.

Texas Tech: QB Nic Shimonek is third nationally with 362 passing yards per game and is completing 72 percent of his passes with 14 touchdowns and just three interceptions. It's hard enough to win in Morgantown, so the Red Raiders need to play their cleanest game of the season to come out with a victory. Justin Stockton ran for a career-high 161 yards while Desmond Nisby had 94 yards and four touchdowns.

Both teams can light up a scoreboard, as they're each averaging more than 43 points per game. They lost by the same score they lost to then-No. In those losses, Texas Tech's normally prolific offense has been limited to 34, 26 and 17 points.

"When they get you in that one-dimensional mode where you're having to throw it, that's playing it right into their hands", Kingsbury said. We know Texas Tech likes to play at a fast clip but the Mountaineers have really sped up the pace this season with 84 plays per game vs. FBS foes. "I just show up and coach football, so I don't have much to say on that", he said. Texas Tech remains one of the nation's best offenses but seems to be getting a bit more credit that it deserves defensively after a small subset of games.

Through five games, the Mountaineers offense ranked third nationally with 577.4 yards per game, while now ninth in scoring at 43.8.

CAMPUS SHOOTING: Kingsbury offered his condolences to the family of a Texas Tech campus police officer who was fatally shot Monday night in Lubbock, Texas. "We obviously work closely with those guys at Texas Tech PD and it's a tough situation for everybody involved", Kingsbury said.

Dominance against Red Raiders: Texas Tech has lost three straight games to the Mountaineers. Holgorsen was Texas Tech's wide receivers coach from 2000-04 and added offensive coordinator duties from 2005-07. The Mountaineers also missed a short field goal.
