Texas DC Vance Bedford: Texas Tech offense is fast, dangerous

Don't be fooled by the mediocre record -- the Red Raiders are a formidable opponent due to Kliff Kingsbury's offense.

The numbers look like something out of a video game.

More than seven yards per play. Nearly a thousand plays. Almost 6,500 total yards.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders field the No. 2 offense nationally, according to S&P+, presenting a major challenge for defensive coordinator Vance Bedford and the Texas Longhorns on Thanksgiving.

There's star wide receiver Jakeem Grant, the 5'6 sparkplug and big-play machine that no one can tackle. Quarterback Pat Mahomes, a strong athlete who always keeps his eyes downfield when scrambling out of the pocket. Running back DeAndre Washington, who benefits from spread out and worn out defenses to lead the nation's No. 5 rush offense in S&P+.
