Baker Mayfield will be the Sooners starting quarterback in 2015
Jake Waters and Daniel Sams each ran for two touchdowns and Waters passed for another score to lead Kansas State over No. 25 Texas Tech 49-26 on Saturday.
In his first season as coach of the No. 20 Red Raiders, Kliff Kingsbury might equal what his former coach did in 2008, when Mike Leach had Texas Tech at 6-0.
Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury says quarterback Baker Mayfield’s knee has no structural damage after the freshman went down in the No. 20 Red Raiders’ win at Kansas.
Baker Mayfield, the Big 12’s offensive player of the week, appeared poised throughout the Red Raiders 41-23 win at SMU last week. In the fourth quarter alone, he completed 15 of 18 passes for 175 yards and two touchdowns.
Texas Tech will start a true freshman at quarterback to open the season, though who it is won’t be known until the offense takes the field Friday night at SMU.
