Texas Tech senior defensive captain D.J. Johnson checked in with Scott Fitzgerald this week for the "Chain Gang Report" on the Sports Shack.

The very first thing Johnson said about Saturday's game against the Texas Longhorns is that "it's a big game". He also said that the defense needs to continue to be aggressive trying to get turnovers. Including, trying to strip the ball away from the Texas running backs.

This week's focus continues to be trying to stop the run, especially with freshman Johnathan Gray getting the nod at running back this week for the Longhorns.
