Texas Tech was able to grind out a solid win over the West Virginia Mountaineers last week, winning 34-27. Texas Tech QB Henry Colombi was slinging it as he passed for one TD and 169 yards on 28 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 40 yards.
Meanwhile, Oklahoma didn’t have too much trouble with the TCU Horned Frogs on the road last week as they won 33-14. The Sooners can attribute much of their success to WR Marvin Mims, who caught four passes for two TDs and 132 yards. That receiving effort made it the first game that Mims has posted more than 100 yards receiving.
Special teams collected 15 points for Oklahoma. K Gabe Brkic delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.
Texas Tech have to know they’ll be fighting an uphill battle given the 14.5-point spread they are up against. Those who got lucky with them against the spread last week might want to hold off on placing bets this time since the team has yet to string together back-to-back wins against the spread.
Texas Tech was pulverized by the Sooners 55-16 when the two teams previously met in September of last year. Maybe the Red Raiders will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
The Sooners are a big 14.5-point favorite against the Red Raiders, according to the latest college football odds.
