Sep 24, 2013; Lubbock, TX, USA; Texas Tech Red Raiders quarterback Baker Mayfield (6) has the team looking great through four games this season. He has keyed the unit to the nation’s fourth-ranked passing attack. 

On Saturday, the Kansas Jayhawks will host the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The game is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. central time and will be shown on Fox Sports 1.

Kansas enters the game with a 2-1 record, while Texas Tech is 4-0. Here is a look at the Red Raiders offense:

Texas Tech starting quarterback Baker Mayfield’s play would suggest he is an upperclassman, though he is just a freshman. He has thrown for eight touchdowns and four interceptions on the season, and 1,120 passing yards.

DeAndre Washington and Quinton White are the team’s one-two punch as running backs. White has rushed for 105 yards on nine carries, while Washington has made 30 carries for 103 yards.

At the wide receiver position, Jace Amaro is Mayfields top target with 29 receptions for 367 yards, and Bradley Marquez has hauled in four touchdowns.

Kansas will have their hands full with Mayfield and his top receivers on Saturday. The trio have made Texas Tech the nation’s fourth highest passing attack, averaging 408 yards per game and 38.8 points.
