LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — Texas Tech could be bowl eligible at the earliest date in five years if it beats Iowa State on Saturday.
In his first season as coach of the No. 20 Red Raiders, Kliff Kingsbury might equal what his former coach did in 2008. Mike Leach had Texas Tech at 6-0 three weeks before the Red Raiders rose to their highest ranking ever, No. 2, after toppling No. 1 Texas to reach 9-0.
