Spread: TCU -7.5
Texas Tech can become bowl eligible with a win, while the Horned Frogs can keep their dimming national playoff hopes alive with a victory. The big question maybe who will play Quarterback for the Frogs, as Kenny Hill at the time of this writing is questionable.
The Red Raiders, after the first month of the season, were a hot team ranked in the top 25. They then went on to lose four consecutive games until last week’s win over a bad Baylor Bears team. So which team will we get? In the end that will decide whether this game is close or not.
TCU has one of the best defenses in the country. Unfortunately, injuries are starting to take their toll–with linebackers Travin Howard, Montrel Wilson and safety Niko Small all suffering. They are all among the top 10 tacklers for the Horned Frogs this season. If these guys are all gone from the lineup, does that mean that the Red Raiders will run wild?
Injuries for TCU will play a large roll in this game and allow Texas Tech and their high-powered offense to hang around in this game. The difference though, will be the sideline where TCU has a huge advantage. TCU Coach Gary Patterson will figure out a way to win.
