LUBBOCK - Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege (DAY'-ghee) is enjoying getting to know his short memory.
Last year, an interception would affect his play going forward. His maturity showed last week when he bounced back after throwing a pick that Iowa State linebacker A.J. Klein took 87 yards for a touchdown.
Doege and his Red Raiders (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) prevailed 24-13 over the Cyclones despite two interceptions. Texas Tech will try to remain unbeaten Saturday when they host No. 17 Oklahoma (2-1, 0-1).
Also aiding Doege's maturation is Texas Tech's surprising defense, which leads the nation. He doesn't have to press as he did last year when the defense finished near the cellar and was on the field a lot.
