Darius Anderson leads Big 12 standouts

Anderson's huge day helped TCU earn a major upset on the road, with his 42-yard TD putting the game out of reach in the final minutes. Texas Tech's Dakota Allen earned honors on defense after stuffing the stat sheet against Houston, while Baylor kicker Connor Martin got the nod on special teams in a losing effort.

3-0 Texas Tech ranks second nationally in turnover margin, and has forced nine turnovers. Said Kliff Kingsbury, "That's what we've been searching for. That's why I was so excited about having (defensive coordinator) David Gibbs for a third year. We're developing a culture, developing an identity."

One coach who entered the season on the hot seat but has cooled things off a bit? Kliff Kingsbury. His Texas Tech team followed its win over Arizona State with a solid road win at Houston, which it held to 10 points in the first three quarters. The 3-0 Red Raiders still must show they can handle Big 12 offenses, beginning next week against Oklahoma State, but this is an encouraging start for Kingsbury.

Rudolph takes home Big 12 honor

Mason Rudolph led Oklahoma State to touchdowns on all seven drives of the first half against Pitt. While Texas fell just short of the upset over USC, DeShon Elliott still picked off Sam Darnold twice. Ja'Deion High's blocked punt gave Texas Tech a short field for a TD in its win over Arizona State.

Texas Tech QB Nic Shimonek currently is third in the country in QBR, trailing only Baker Mayfield and Mason Rudolph. "He can get a lot better, but I like where he's at," said his coach, Kliff Kingsbury. "I like his mentality. He knows he has only one year, and he's trying to take full advantage of it.”

Adam Rittenberg ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury on LB Dakota Allen of "Last Chance U" fame, who rejoined the Red Raiders after a season at East Mississippi Community College: "You can tell he's making the most of every day back." Texas Tech dismissed Allen early in 2016 after he and two teammates were indicted on burglary charges. Allen has 15 tackles in the first two games.
