Current Records: Oklahoma State 9-1; Texas Tech 6-4

What to Know

A Big 12 battle is on tap between the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Texas Tech Red Raiders at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium. Keep an eye on the score for this one: both teams posted some lofty points totals in their previous games, so things might heat up even more when they meet.

When you finish with 413 more yards than your opponent like Oklahoma State did last week, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They claimed a resounding 63-17 win over the TCU Horned Frogs at home. The contest was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 28-3. RB Jaylen Warren had a stellar game for the Cowboys as he rushed for three TDs and 113 yards on 17 carries.

Meanwhile, Texas Tech's offense rose to the challenge against an Iowa State defense that boasted an average of only 18.22 points allowed. They skirted past the Iowa State Cyclones 41-38. Texas Tech QB Donovan Smith was slinging it as he passed for three TDs and 322 yards on 32 attempts in addition to picking up 50 yards on the ground.

Special teams collected 12 points for Texas Tech. K Jonathan Garibay booted in two field goals, the longest a 62-yarder in the fourth quarter, which ultimately accounted for the difference in the game.

Oklahoma State is the favorite in this one, with an expected 10-point margin of victory. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on an eight-game streak of ATS wins.

Oklahoma State is now 9-1 while the Red Raiders sit at 6-4. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: The Cowboys are 161st worst in the nation in thrown interceptions, having thrown seven on the season. Texas Tech has experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the matchup with the 220th most thrown interceptions in the nation, having thrown 11 on the season. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
