The Red Raiders bye week is officially over

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – The Red Raiders bye week is officially over and for the next two months, Saturdays will include a Texas Tech football game. The team will pick their season back up next Saturday, October 2nd as they travel to Iowa State to face the Cyclones.

There were mixed feelings from coaches to players on the timing of the bye week and whether or not it would be beneficial this early in the season. In speaking to the team after the home loss to Texas, they said there were areas that needed improvement on both sides of the ball. After yesterdays two hour practice, we spoke to the men in charge of the Red Raiders offense and defense to see how productive the bye week was.

"We really got two good days of work, and a lot of good one on one work," said Texas Tech Offensive Coordinator Neal Brown. "We were able to get some guys who have red shirt or maybe hadn't got to play as much in the first three games. We got them some good work. It gave them some time off they needed some time off. We grinded on them a little bit in camp and they needed some time off and we gave them a good three days off."

"Getting better on techniques and fundamentals, and really understanding the defense inside and out," said Texas Tech Defensive Coordinator James Willis. "Week by week we are growing on defense. Our guys steeped up their play, stepped up their studding. It always helps to have a bye week to get a little fresh, get some younger guys some more reps, and really review."
