LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech answered its worst defensive possession of the game with its best offensive possession, countering a 12-play, 72 yard drive by SMU with seven play, 80 yard drive in 1:23 to grab a 21-7 halftime lead.
Detron Lewis capped the drive with 16-yard touchdown score over the middle.
Lewis and fellow receiver Lyle Leong have emerged as quarterback Taylor Potts' top two targets in the season opener. Potts has thrown all three of his touchdowns to the pair, who have combined for 13 receptions and 174 of the Red Raiders' 226 passing yards in the first half.
Even better for Texas Tech is after the impressive touchdown drive, it will receive the kick to begin the second half.
