Baucum's Quick Hits

Staff Writer John Baucum give a quick look at Texas Tech's 24-17 win over No. 12 Missouri.

Quick Hits

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.
