What to Know

Texas Tech are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 30.67 points per game before their next match. They will look to defend their home turf on Saturday against Texas at 8:30 p.m. With a combined 996 yards in their previous games, we can expect a fast-paced contest.

Don't be fooled by the insanely high score: we promise Texas Tech and Oklahoma were playing football. Texas Tech didn't finish too far behind, but the squad still lost 46-51 to Oklahoma last week. Jett Duffey and Da'Leon Ward were two go-getters for Texas Tech despite the defeat. The former threw 2 TDs and picked up 47 yards on the ground on 13 carries, while the latter picked up 53 yards on the ground on 8 carries and caught 5 passes for 74 yards.

Meanwhile, Texas and West Virginia were almost perfectly matched up, but Texas suffered an agonizing 41-42 loss. It was a tough break for Texas, who improved upon an already decent score from two weeks ago but lost both times.

With the two teams each stumbling in off of a defeat, both will be hungry for the victory. Given their high-scoring efforts against their previous opponents, it will be interesting to see how far up these teams can run up the score.
