Texas Tech looks to rebound from a loss to West Virginia last week, facing Oklahoma at home.

Texas Tech, which faces Oklahoma this week at home, is coming off of a rough performance against West Virginia. In the 48-17 loss to the Mountaineers last week, those 17 points marked a season-low for Texas Tech. Coming into the game, the Red Raiders also had a streak of nine consecutive home games in which they'd scored 50 or more points.

The Red Raiders have to go up against Oklahoma's defense this week, which numbers-wise hasn't been very stout. The unit gives up 33 points per game, which ranks 100th in the country. On the flip side, Tech's defense faces a challenge this week, with OU's offense scoring an average of 40 points per game. It looks like this one will be a shootout, folks.

Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been excellent so far this season, throwing for 2,579 yards and 21 touchdowns with just five interceptions. Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield has been impressive as well, throwing for just over 1,803 yards and 16 touchdowns.

Three big things to know

1. OU is looking to go 4-0 in Big 12 play: If Oklahoma gets a win on Saturday over the Red Raiders, it will mark the first 4-0 start for the Sooners in conference play since 2004. All of OU's 4-0 conference starts have been under head coach Bob Stoops. It would be the sixth 4-0 Big 12 start in school history, if the Sooners get a victory.

2. Oklahoma WR Dede Westbrook continues to make plays: The redshirt senior wide receiver is riding an impressive three-game stretch. In just three games, he's amassed 574 receiving yards, along with eight touchdowns. Both of those figures are good for Oklahoma school records as well.

3. Oklahoma has the upper hand: The Sooners lead the series between these two teams, with a 17-6 record. They've also won the last four meetings, including two in Lubbock.
