Texas Tech takes its perfect 4-0 record into the second week of the regular season where it will host BYU (Feb. 24, 25) and Northern Illinois (Feb. 26, 27) for the second annual Brooks Wallace Memorial Classic. Tech is in the midst of an 18-game homestand. The Red Raiders allowed only five runs in their first four games, leaving the weekend with a 1.75 ERA for its pitching staff. A win against BYU on Thursday would give Tech its second straight 5-0 start to the season. Tech is currently batting .362 as a team with seven of its hitters hitting above .300.
