KliffNotes: Red Raiders focused on TCU

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The Red Raiders got back in the win column for the first time since Oct. 7, but the season-long trend continued against Baylor, as the team struggled to figure out, how to finish the game.

"I've got to call better plays is what it comes down to," Red Raider head football coach Kliff Kingsbury said. "Just looking at it, I felt like after that fumble, as an offense, staff included, we didn't respond well. I think it was nine plays for 29 yards. After that, everybody got down and didn't respond the right way. That's all me. I'm the one that calls the plays, and I've got to get us some better plays and plays that Nic is comfortable with and our offense is comfortable with. Find a way to be better at calling plays in the fourth quarter."

So now the Red Raiders turn their focus onto TCU, where the Horned Frogs come into Saturday's contest with the 14th ranked defense in the nation.

"They're really good," Kingsbury said. "I've always said Coach Patterson does it as well as anybody to ever do it when it comes to coordinating defenses and coaching his players. They're as well-coached as anybody in the country, and they're playing at a very, very high level. So, they're right up there, no question."

At the game, students are encouraged to stay late and be loud.

As the Reagor-Dykes Auto Group announced they will be giving away a car in the fourth quarter to one lucky student.

"I was a little nervous for him, to be honest," Red Raider head football coach Kliff Kingsbury said. "That was an aggressive kick. But apparently, he's done it before, and he probably stretched out previously. But he's got the juice, man. You've got to give him credit. There is nobody who has more energy. He's got a positive spirit, and he loves Texas Tech. So, I've got to take my hat off to him."
