LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -- Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege is starting to enjoy his short memory.
Last year, Doege's interceptions would linger and affect his play. Not anymore. Just last week, he bounced back after throwing a pick that Iowa State linebacker A.J. Klein took 87 yards for a touchdown.
Doege and the Red Raiders (4-0, 1-0) prevailed 24-13 despite giving up two interceptions to the Cyclones.
Texas Tech will try to remain unbeaten Saturday when it hosts No. 17 Oklahoma.
The game against the Sooners (2-1, 0-1) is the first of five straight against ranked opponents for Texas Tech and its surprisingly stingy defense, best in the nation.
After all, defense has often been an afterthought to the high-flying Texas Tech offenses over the years.
