LUBBOCK (AP) – For years no one disputed Texas Tech could pass.

Even after Mike Leach’s departure in 2009 the Red Raiders have kept slinging it all over the Big 12. Problem was their defense was a dud.

Not this season. The Red Raiders have the second-best defense in the country, while the pass-happy offense continues to hum right along.

It’s a strong sign that defensive-minded coach Tommy Tuberville is in charge and the pass-happy pirate of the South Plains has moved on.

Tuberville knows Big 12 opponents will have more size and talent than Texas Tech’s three nonconference foes, but he’s glad to see improvement.

Texas Tech is off this week off and begins Big 12 play at Iowa State on Sept. 29.
