Tech puts undefeated mark on line at TCU

Texas Tech plays at TCU tonight at 6:30 p.m. and brings with it a No. 23 ranking. The Red Raiders moved into the Associated Press Top 25 this week for the first time, believe it or not, in four years. What was that former head coach's name?

Oh yes, Robert Montgomery Knight, who clearly wasn't getting what he wanted out of his troops.

Patrick Knight is.

The son of Bob is in his second full season at the helm (Tech went 14-19 last season) and has the Red Raiders at 8-0, one of 11 undefeated teams in the Top 25. They're coming off an impressive overtime win last Thursday (Bob was in attendance) against then-No. 12 Washington.

While TCU (5-3) continues its rebuilding process under second-year coach Jim Christian, this will be a challenge for the Red Raiders, who have played just one other road game this season, a 63-61 win at Stephen F. Austin on Nov. 24.

One player to keep a close eye on is Tech's 5-foot-11 guard John Roberson, who was named the Big 12's Player of the Week.
