KURT VOIGT, AP Sports Writer (AP)- Oklahoma hopes to shut down Texas Tech’s latest version of the Air Raid offense on Saturday.

In order to do so, the No. 17 Sooners (6-1, 3-1 Big 12 Conference) likely must start more quickly than they have in the last two weeks — when they lost to Texas and fell behind 13-0 to Kansas before rallying for a win.

Oklahoma leads the country in pass defense, allowing just 149.7 yards through the air per game.

The Sooners’ secondary figures to be tested like never before this season against the No. 10 Red Raiders (7-0, 4-0), who are second in the country with an average of 416.4 yards passing per game under first-year coach Kliff Kingsbury.
