The Texas Tech offense is not struggling by any stretch of the imagination, but it won't hurt to get one of its top playmakers back.

Devin Lauderdale, who missed the Iowa State game, will return against Kansas this week. After piling up a school record 776 yards of offense against the Cyclones, there's no telling what this Red Raider offense could do against the Jayhawks, who already lost to Iowa State and just surrendered 66 to Baylor.

Lauderdale has a gaudy 323 yards on 16 receptions this season, and he serves as one of Patrick Mahomes' best deep threats.
