The Red Raiders almost gave up the top spot in the Big 12. However, they showed why they are so good and came back to beat BYU to stay on top. Texas Tech is on top of these rankings because of where they are in the conference standings, but how good are their wins?
Texas Tech has beat Texas, Oklahoma State, Kansas State, and BYU. Texas has struggled since, Oklahoma State is winless in the conference, they only beat K-State by one, and BYU has struggled in conference play. I am not trying to take anything away from the Red Raiders but they need wins over the bigger opponents in the conference.
They lost to Houston this week and had to have a comeback win over BYU. Going forward, I need to be more impressed by BYU in order for them to stay on top of these rankings.
