John Gutierrez-USA TODAY Sports

Big-12 college football features the Texas Tech Red Raiders hosting the Texas Longhorns.

The Texas Longhorns have followed a six game winning streak with consecutive losses following a 42-41 defeat in week ten to West Virginia who converted a two point conversion in the closing seconds. Texas was outgained 578-520 with the only turnover of the game while logging 34 minutes of possession.

Longhorns quarterback Sam Ehlinger connected on 25-36 for 354 yards and three touchdowns while rushing eleven times for 52 yards and a score.

Tre Watson ran for 80 yards on 14 touches and a TD on 14 carries and gave the Horns another 35 yards and a score on two catches. The duo of Lil’Jordan Humphrey and Devin Duvernay were the go to receivers for Texas with 15 combined receptions for 243 yards and a touchdown each.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders drive for a Bowl has stalled with consecutive defeats after a 51-46 shootout loss to Oklahoma. Texas Tech gave  up 683 yards and countered with 473 yards and won the turnover battle 2-0.

Red Raiders quarterback Alan Bowman hit 21-26 for 227 yards and a pair of touchdowns while Jett Duffey completed 9-17 and another two scores.

Da’Leon Ward led the Red Raiders on the ground with 53 yards on eight totes with a TD followed by Antoine Wesley totaled 12 receptions for 199 yards.

Texas Longhorns are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 games on fieldturf and under is 5-0 in Texas Longhorns last 5 games after scoring more than 40 points in their previous game and under is 8-1 in Texas Longhorns last 9 games after accumulating more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. Over is 6-0 in Texas Tech Red Raiders last 6 games after allowing more than 450 total yards in their previous game and Texas Tech Red Raiders are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss and Texas Tech Red Raiders are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games after allowing more than 280 yards passing in their previous game. Texas Longhorns are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Texas Tech and road team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings and under is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Texas Tech. 

My thinking here is the Longhorns are a better defense in this matchup and facing a back up quarterback…

Pick:
Texas +1

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
