— Texas Tech was 10 of 23 on third down. After going 3-12 and 5-15 in the last couple of games, this improvement is tremendous—especially going against the best defense in the Big 12.
— Steven Sheffield started tonight's game, marking the first time he's done that all season.
The win tonight snaps a three game win streak for Missouri and marks the first Tech win in the series since a 52-38 win in 2002.
—Ball control offense works… Texas Tech had the ball for 39:41 as opposed to 20:19. For the last 10 years we've heard that time of possession doesn't matter. I bet Gary Pinkel and the Missouri Tigers disagree.
—Lyle Leong on how nice it was to see Potts play well: "Oh man, I was just excited to get the win. You know, we worked hard and it was a blessing. I'm excited to see everyone do [well.] We played well as a team so it was a good thing."
—Eric Stephens broke the season mark for kickoff return yardage that he set last year as a freshman. Stephens accumulated 823 yards last season and now has 825 with three regular season games yet to play.
—The Red Raiders took the lead with 6:46 left in the third quarter to end the scoring for the game.
