As Texas Tech quickly jumped back into the game before halftime against Oklahoma State on Saturday, I was begging for Mike Gundy to stick with what worked against the Red Raiders last week when OU beat them.

Either Gundy heard me, felt a raptor gaining on him or just realized that Texas Tech couldn’t stop the Cowboys’ potent ground game. Rennie Childs, Desmond Roland, Josh Stewart (!) Jeremy Smith (?!?) and, yes, Clint Chelf rolled up 281 yards rushing to lead the Cowboys to a 52-34 win.

Don Williams of the Lubbock Avalanche Journal said the Cowboys’ vaunted pass defense and pass rush was a problem for true freshman quarterback Davis Webb, who at 71 passes fell one attempt short of a school record.

Clint Chelf got a Big 12 helmet sticker from ESPN.com’s Max Olsen … and so did Texas Tech’s Jace Amaro.

SI.com’s Zac Ellis led off his Week 10 Snap Judgements with the Cowboys, saying they’re in the thick of the Big 12 title race, while Texas Tech is trending the other way.

After the Cowboys’ offense struggled in its first few conference games, it seems coach Mike Gundy’s group is clicking at the right time.

Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News said Texas Tech was left chasing again. And Jimmie Tramel of the Tulsa World said the Cowboys made history in their series with the Red Raiders on Saturday.

John Hoover of the Tulsa World wrote an interesting column on the career downturns of Ryan Broyles and Justin Blackmon in the NFL. Hoover says each has been tough to watch for different reasons.

Chelf Help

Chelf took matters into his own hands on this 67-yard touchdown run to break the Red Raiders in the third quarter.
