The Texas Tech Red Raiders are a very talented team and get after it defensively, but they simply have had zero success covering numbers this season. The Texas Longhorns are quietly one of the hotter teams in the country, and they have a little more balance to their attack than Texas Tech. The Texas Longhorns are a team I'm keeping a close eye on right now and will be backing often as long as they stay hot.
