The Texas Tech Red Raiders have only one game left to gain bowl eligibility, but completing the task won't be easy as they take on the 21st- ranked Baylor Bears this Saturday at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Texas Tech is 5-6 on the year, and the team is currently mired in a four-game losing steak. During their recent run of futility, the Red Raiders have been outscored by 190-60 margin. Last week's loss at Missouri was actually the closest of the foursome, as it ended in a 31-27 final. Tommy Tuberville's team is 3-2 on the road this year, with its signature win being a 41-38 upset of Oklahoma in Norman back on October 22.
Baylor took care of the same Sooners last Saturday, 45-38, winning for the first time ever in 22 tries against Oklahoma. As a result, the Bears find themselves with a 7-3 record, which includes a 4-3 mark in Big 12 play. A win here and next week at home against Texas, would solidify their place in a significant bowl game. A win over the Red Raiders would also give BU its first-ever five win Big 12 slate, and its first four-game win streak since winning five straight to begin the 1991 season. The last time the Bears won four straight conference games was a six-game stretch in 1986-87.
