The Texas Tech Red Raiders continued preparations for their first Big 12 test of the season up in Ames, Iowa.
Each of the past two seasons the Red Raiders have been a little slow getting off the bus against the cyclones. In 2010, at Iowa State, they fell down 24-0 before they were able to rally and make a game of it before eventually falling 52-38. Last year they were down 21-0 and were never able to recover losing big to The Cyclones at home 41-7. The focus for The Red Raiders this week has been getting off to a good start from the opening kick.
