MORGANTOWN, W.V. – There's a saying that bad teams find a way to lose and that nickname could not be more true of Texas Tech. The Red Raiders lost to the Big 12 Kansas Pigeon after fleeing the ball after blocking a potentially winning field. They must regroup after a week off and travel to West Virginia on Saturday to face a team that also found an unusual way to lose a game last week.
