Texas Tech (1-0) vs Stephen F. Austin (1-0) Game Preview
Why Stephen F Austin Will Win
The Lumberjacks might just have the quirky formula to give Texas Tech problems.
They have a good, efficient pass defense, they don’t turn the ball over in bunches, and Trae Self is an effective quarterback who keeps things moving.
Tarleton threw well in the 20-10 SFA win last week, but it also got picked off three times. Texas Tech didn’t screw up enough to matter in the 38-21 win over Houston, but it also didn’t bomb away with the passing game.
Tyler Shough was fine, but this is hardly the high-powered Texas Tech offense we’ve all come to know and love. However …
Why Texas Tech Will Win
It was a terrific performance by the Red Raiders after getting down early.
Shough didn’t make any big mistakes, the defense allowed just 251 yards and came up with four takeaways, and it was exactly what the team needed to get into the season and set a tone.
Tahj Brooks ran well, the defense was a terror into the backfield, and all the experience, all the super-seniors, and all the parts put together over the last three years came together.
This is too experienced of a team to not be focused in Week 2.
What’s Going To Happen
Stephen F. Austin will have a few good drives, but they’ll come too late.
The Red Raiders still need to be more effective, more efficient, and they have to come out of the gate hot. After the way they started against Houston, they’ll emphasize producing on their first few drives, and that should put it away fast.
