Notebook: Texas Tech’s fast start propels Red Raiders to victory over Kansas

Slow starts have been a thorn in Texas Tech’s side all season. In a handful of games, the Red Raiders put themselves in a big hole by failing to score early. That wasn’t the case against Kansas as Tech marched down the field to score on each of his first four drives, three of which were touchdowns.

The Red Raiders took a 24-7 lead early in the second quarter, and the gap was just too big for Kansas to bridge, something Tech typically had on the wrong end in 2022. Head coach Joey McGuire and the Raiders returned .500 and are one game closer to bowl eligibility with two regular season games still on their schedule.
