National reaction to Texas Tech’s blowout loss to Texas: No positives to draw from historic defeat

The Red Raiders will look to put this humiliating defeat out of their memory.

Texas Tech just allowed an opponent to score 70 or more points for the third time since 2000, falling 70-25 to Texas.

Texas got anything and everything it wanted offensively in this game. The Longhorns had 336 yards on the ground and 303 passing yards. Texas Tech quarterback Tyler Shough suffered a shoulder injury in the second quarter that will keep him out for a few weeks. The Red Raiders’ leading rusher Tahj Brooks also missed the game with a lower leg injury. In nearly every aspect, Texas Tech would like to throw this game in the garbage.

Here are some of the national reactions to Texas Tech’s loss.
