Meanwhile, Texas Tech had enough points to win and then some against the Houston Cougars last week, taking their game 38-21. The victory came about thanks to a strong surge after the first quarter to overcome a 14 to nothing deficit. Texas Tech’s RB Tahj Brooks was one of the most active players for the squad, rushing for two TDs and 134 yards on 15 carries.
The Red Raiders’ defense was a presence as well, as it collected four interceptions. Those interceptions were spread across their defensive unit.
