Texas Tech doesn't want to feel like Kansas State or Iowa State after the Red Raiders play Stephen F. Austin from lower-division FCS. Last week the Big 12 co-champion Wildcats and Cyclones lost to FCS teams. The Lumberjacks, who play a spread offense and came within three points in the fourth quarter against Weber State last week, want to get in the win column after losing 50-40.
Texas Tech secondary against Lumberjacks quarterback Brady Attaway. The Red Raiders allowed two SMU receivers 100-plus yards receiving each in the season opener.
Stephen F. Austin: QB Brady Attaway leads the FCS in passing with 450 yards. He was 37 for 62 with four touchdowns against Weber State. He led a comeback to pull within 43-40 in the fourth quarter.
Texas Tech: QB Baker Mayfield: a walk-on freshman who's been on campus for about two months, is coming off a five-touchdown performance in a win at SMU. He threw for 413 yard and four TDs, and had an 11-yard scoring run. His offensive line needs to step up after he got sacked four times against the Mustangs.
