Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury hasn’t needed a lot to get his team motivated this season – an undefeated start is motivation enough – but when there’s motivation to be had, Kingsbury isn’t shy about taking it.
Kingsbury told media after his team’s 37-27 win over West Virginia that Kirk Herbsteit’s pick against the Red Raiders on ESPN's College GameDay inspired his team.
Kingsbury: "I saw GameDay, saw @KirkHerbstreit picked against us. I hope they keep giving us that locker room material."

Hey, why not?
It’s probably safe to say Texas Tech is one of the most undervalued undefeated teams out there, so if Kingsbury can use that to his advantage, so be it.
By the way, the Red Raiders are now 7-0 for the first time since 2008 and only the fourth time in school history.
