LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

In a game where multiple NCAA records were broken by the Red Raider offense, the team still managed to fall to Oklahoma by a final of 66-59. So the biggest question at the press conference was, what is Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury's plan to try and fix the defense?

"Trying new things. At this point with the performance of the last two weeks, I think it's all up for discussion on that side of the ball. So we're going to try some personnel groupings and try some different things to change it up and breathe some life into it and get a few turnovers," Kingsbury said.

Turnovers were the bread and butter for the Red Raider defense last season, but they haven't forced one since the Kansas game this year.

"If I had an answer for the struggles, I would let you know," Kingsbury said. "If I could answer why we haven't gotten any turnovers, I would fix it but they're working diligently to try to put people in the right places to be successful, and the players have to make plays. It's been a rough couple of weeks, and we'll work hard this week trying to get it fixed."

Up next, they travel to Fort Worth to take on the TCU Horned Frogs, and Kliff knows they will have their hands full yet again.

"Dynamic receivers, running back one of the best in the conference, good offensive line, Sonny and Meacham do a great job with their scheme and have been really good offensively. The way we've been playing defensively we're going to have to step up, find a way to get some turnovers and make some stops," Kingsbury said.
