The Texas Tech Red Raiders come into this matchup with a 3-5 record, and they will be looking to rebound after dropping their recent road game against the Kansas Jayhawks, 37-34. QB Jett Duffey had a big game through the air as he connected on 23 of his 34 pass attempts for 271 yards and 3 TDs. RB Sarodorick Thompson had a solid game on the ground as he ran for 80 yards and a TD on 20 carries.

The West Virginia Mountaineers were solid on the defensive side of the ball against the Baylor Bears as they held them to 17 points while forcing 3 turnovers. Sophomore safety Noah Guzman led the way for the West Virginia defense with 11 tackles and 1 fumble recovery. Junior DL Darius Tills was able to get into the Baylor backfield a handful of times as he contributed 10 tackles, 3 TFL, and 3 sacks while Dylan Tonkery pitched in 2 TFL.

The West Virginia Mountaineers have not had success on the offensive side of the ball this season as they rank 112th in points scored, and the lack of a ground attack has been the problem as they are averaging 78.9 yards per game. Texas Tech has looked much better with Jett Duffey under center as he has thrown 9 TDs to 2 interceptions, and he has been supported by Sarodorick Thompson on the ground as he has 550 yards and 8 TDs. Texas Tech will dare the Mountaineers to try and run the ball, but the difference is their ball-hawking DB Douglas Coleman who has 7 interceptions on the season.
