What you need to know about Texas Tech

Texas Tech came out on top in a nail-biter against the West Virginia Mountaineers last Saturday, sneaking out a 23-20 win to bounce back from its embarrassing 70-35 loss to Texas the week prior. The Red Raiders are now 4-1 on the season.

Texas Tech has been formidable on the defensive side of the ball in 2021, despite their season average of 30.5 points allowed per game, which is skewed by the Texas blowout. Offensively, the Red Raiders have been efficient, and at times explosive, putting up 35.6 points and 438 total yards per game.  

What you need to know about TCU

TCU enters this game coming off heartbreaking losses to rivals SMU and Texas in back to back weeks. This will be TCU's first road game of the 2021 season, but the Frogs own a 44-20 record away from home since 2009. 

This game could ultimately be decided by how well each team plays defensively. TCU has struggled at times this year, particularly against the run, but the talent is there for them to be successful.
