Big 12 and Lone Star State rivals will squad off in Austin on Saturday, as the Texas Longhorns play host to the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
Texas Tech opened the season with four consecutive victories under the guidance of second-year head coach Tommy Tuberville. Unfortunately, things have gone down hill lately for the Red Raiders, who have lost three of their last four games. Last weekend, the club was completely dismantled by Iowa State in Lubbock, losing by a shocking final of 41-7. That unthinkable letdown came just one week after Tuberville's club upset previously unbeaten Oklahoma.
Like Texas Tech, Texas needs just one more victory to become bowl eligible. The Longhorns opened the campaign with four consecutive victories before suffering back-to-back losses to Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Fortunately,squad was able to get back on track last weekend with a 43-0 romp over Kansas.
Game date, time: 12:00 pm ET, Saturday, November 5th
