Big 12 Football Power Rankings | #5 Texas Tech Red Raiders

According SB Nation site Crimson and Cream (OU) and their offseason football power ranking, Texas Tech is the No. 5 team in the Big 12 Conference.

With an offense losing star tight end, Jace Amaro to the NFL and top receiver, Eric Ward to graduation some brows will be raised. Yet, this offense remains loosely intact. Davis Webb who took over at quarterback mid-way through the season and had an incredible end to the season throwing touchdowns on the first four possession in the Holiday Bowl. The expectation is that he will pick up right where he left off.

Add to Webb the leading rusher from a year ago, Kenny Williams and the offense appears ready to battle.

The glaring issue can be found on the defensive side of the ball. Forced to replace seven starters, it’s back to the drawing board. Can Kliff Kingsbury and his staff find serviceable players to step up and produce like the last crop did? Regardless, the offense can handle business but it will be up to the defense to win games.
