Did it seem like Texas Tech played with a bit of a chip on its shoulder in Saturday’s game with Texas State? According to Red Raiders linebacker Terrance Bullitt, that was exactly the case.
“All week we felt disrespected about this game,” Bullitt told the Dallas Morning News. “Big 12 upset alert. We were going to lose. We saw it on College GameDay. We responded to the challenge and went out there and played our butts off.”
Bullitt also mentioned a perceived disrespect from Texas State, despite no Bobcat players sounding off prior to Saturday’s game. Texas State consistently said it respected the Red Raiders and moved on from its upset win two weeks ago over Houston.
“It was disrespectful how they were to us,” Bullitt said. “We didn’t say anything all week, but now we won and we showed them, ‘Hey we’re in the Big 12, so if you’re going to come play us, you’ve got to put your big boy pants on.’”
Bullitt had two tackles and broke up a pass in Texas Tech’s 58-10 win.
