One of the driving forces behind Texas Tech’s 41-38 upset win over Oklahoma in 2011 was the Red Raiders’ success on receiver screen passes. Alex Torres’ 44-yard touchdown catch-and-run off a screen pass sparked the Red Raiders offense less than two minutes into the game.

This season, the Sooners are focused on slowing the Red Raiders’ “jailbreak” screen, a play in which the receiver slides inside to catch a screen pass behind the offensive line.

“That’s a tough play; their timing is outstanding on it,” defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said. “It’s just something we have to have alerts for and recognize it quicker.”
