Last Week: 2

This was a tough week for the Red Raiders. Before the week started they were sitting on top of the conference with somewhat of a comfortable lead. Now they have lost back-to-back games and are sitting in fifth place in the standings.

The Red Raiders dropped games against TCU and Cincinnati, definitely not bad teams in the slightest, but with how they have been playing, definitely winnable games. Texas Tech can get back on track, but it is going to be an uphill climb the rest of the way now that they have given up that lead.

They will have a rematch with Cincinnati in their next game and it will be very helpful for Texas Tech to stop the bleeding now and get back in the win column.
