I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t a great decade for the Texas Tech football program when it came to play in the secondary. In fact, one of the lowest points in Tech football history illustrated just how far the program had fallen in the defensive backfield.
Back in 2011, the No. 2 Oklahoma State Cowboys came to Lubbock and put the worst beating in the history of Jones Stadium by a visitor on the Red Raiders, 66-6. That day, two Cowboy receivers went for over 100 yards, including two-time Biletnikoff Award winner, Justin Blackmon, who had 6 catches for 103 yards and two scores.
