Oklahoma’s Big 12 seasons begins Saturday at home against Texas Tech.

Here’s a quick look at the Red Raiders

Game day 

• Who: No. 5 Oklahoma (3-0) vs. Texas Tech (2-1)

• Kickoff: 11 a.m., Saturday | Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium


• Radio: KRXO-FM 107.7

• Perspective: Since Texas Tech pulled off a 41-38 stunner over OU in Norman in 2011, the Sooners have won seven in a row. … Before becoming a two-time Mountain West coach of the year, Tech coach Matt Wells grew up in Sallisaw, home of the Black Diamonds. … Former OU cornerbacks coach Kerry Cooks is on the Red Raiders’ staff as safeties coach.

3 players to watch

• 7 Jett Duffey (6-1, 195; Jr. QB): Texas Tech’s backup quarterback, who will likely play for Alan Bowman this week, is no slouch. Last season he was the first Tech quarterback to lead the team in rushing since Joe Barnes in 1973.

• 5 Armand Shyne (5-11, 210; Sr. RB): He’s averaging just over 10 yards per carry as the Red Raiders’ primary back, gaining 7.2 yards per attempt. 

• 3 Douglas Coleman III (6-1, 200; Sr. DB): He has two interceptions in three games. Kyler Murray threw two picks to Vaughnte Dorsey in the first two possessions of last season’s games. OU’s Jalen Hurts has yet to be intercepted.
