Texas Tech junior running back Sarodorick Thompson attempts to evade the Kansas defense. Kansas fell 41-14 Saturday, Oct. 16 2021.
As head coach Lance Leipold summed it up after his Kansas football team’s 41-14 loss to Texas Tech on Saturday, “a lot of different things in a lot of different areas” didn’t go as planned for the Jayhawks. Defensively, one of KU’s more significant problems was a lack of third-down stops. The Red Raiders cruised to a road win with the help of a 9-for-11 success rate on third downs.
