Two big time programs with a lot of hopes this season meet on Saturday night as the Texas Tech Red Raiders head west to take on the Arizona State Sun Devils.
Both teams look to build off their Week 1 wins against FCS schools.
The Red Raiders had zero issues in their opening game against Stephen F. Austin.
Texas Tech put in 3 touchdowns in the first quarter to set the tone in what would eventually be a 69-17 victory.
It was a typical quick paced, let it fly offensive outburst for the Red Raiders who racked up 758 yards. Nothing new, 633 of them were through the air.
QB Patrick Mahomes II looked extremely impressive in the win as he tossed 4 touchdowns before being pulled from action.
The Red Raiders are going to be an extremely dangerous team here against the Sun Devils, not just because of that passing game, but also because of the run game they’ve built.
RB Justin Stockton wasn’t asked to do anything in Week 1, but he is expected to have a giant season in the backfield with Mahomes. Look for him to get a lot of touches here, as he can open the gaps downfield or will see a lot of open gaps thanks to the passing game.
Arizona State Sun Devils
The Sun Devils got off to a slow start in Week 1 against Northern Arizona, but they quickly adjusted at half.
Arizona outscored NAU 34-10 in the 2nd half, having little issue moving the ball.
ASU put up 276 rush yards while passing for 180 yards. The run game in the 2nd half opened the door for the pass game, something the Sun Devils will try to do here.
While the Texas Tech defense looked good in Week 1, they will face a much bigger test here. In the past seasons, the Tech defense has been the reason for their failures.
If Arizona State can develop that run game early and wear this front down, they’ll open the playbook and allow Manny Wilkins to take some shots down field.
Defensively, they looked sluggish at times against NAU and will certainly have to buckle down in the secondary as the Red Raiders let it fly at all costs.
