Arizona State looked good entering Monday night's Holiday Bowl, but then they teed it up and Texas Tech ran all over the Sun Devils, 37-23, in what UT San Diego columnist Nick Canepa called "one of the least memorable Holidays."

If only Texas Tech could play a little defense. That has been a familiar saying around Lubbock since, oh, 2000, when Mike Leach brought his pitch-and-catch game to the Plains. Leach is long gone and Tommy Tuberville is now calling the shots, but the Red Raiders are still struggling to stop opponents. Tuberville's first two teams have each finished 114th nationally in total defense. While indications are that the defense will be improved in 2012 (can it get any worse?), how far the team goes will depend on that unit's improvement.

Wiz correspondent Greg Laughlin made his way to Columbia, Mo., on Saturday for the Texas Tech-Missouri game, the final Big 12 Conference home game for the Tigers, who are off to the Southeastern Conference next season.
The Tigers were without coach Gary Pinkel, who was serving a one-game suspension after being served one too many glasses of red wine before getting behind the wheel of his vehicle earlier in the week. Nonetheless, Missouri became bowl eligible with a 31-27 victory.
