As Texas Tech gets ready for today’s game against Oklahoma, there’s a good chance the front page of The Oklahoman's Sooners preview might find its way into the Red Raiders locker room.

On it is a picture of Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury and the word “OVERRATED” scrolled above his head.

The Red Raiders are 7-0 and atop the Big 12 standings, but only one of those wins was against a team that currently boasts a winning record. Texas Tech’s real season starts in Norman, Okla., today and we’ll all find out whether the Red Raiders are really a contender or a product of their schedule.

Still, if they want motivation, this should help. Last week, Kingsbury admitted to using Kirk Herbstreit’s prediction against the Red Raiders on ESPN’s "College GameDay" as motivation for his team’s 37-27 win against West Virginia.
