The Texas Tech Red Raiders are 1-0 after beating Stephen F. Austin by a score of 69-17 in week 1. Texas Tech scored 45 points in the first half on their way to a very easy victory against a much weaker team. The Texas Tech offense had 69 points with 633 passing yards and 125 rushing yards in their win. Patrick Mahomes threw for 483 yards and 4 touchdowns, while also rushing for 57 yards and 2 touchdowns for Texas Tech. Corey Dauphine rushed for 25 yards and 1 touchdown for the Red Raiders. Devin Lauderdale caught 7 passes for 49 yards and 1 touchdown for Texas Tech. The Texas Tech defense gave up 17 points with 312 passing yards and 58 rushing yards in their victory. Tevin Madison led the Texas Tech defense with 5 tackles, while Keenon Ward added 3 tackles and 1 interception for the Red Raiders. Clayton Hatfield went 2-2 on field goals, with a long of 43 yards.
Texas Tech is 5-0-1 ATS in their last 6 games in September and is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games. The over is 8-0 in Texas Tech’s last 8 games against a team with a winning record. Arizona State is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 September games. The under is 4-1 in Arizona State’s 5 non-conference games.
Both of these teams won their first game of the season very easily. This game should be a high scoring affair and very entertaining to watch. Texas Tech loves to pass the ball and should find some success after Arizona State allowed over 350 passing yards to Northern Arizona. Arizona State ran the ball very well in week 1, but will find success passing against a weak Texas Tech secondary. I like Texas Tech to win this game on the road behind the arm of quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
