TCU @ Texas Tech
Current Records: TCU 2-2; Texas Tech 4-1
What to Know
The TCU Horned Frogs have enjoyed the comforts of home their last four games, but now they must head out on the road. TCU and the Texas Tech Red Raiders will face off in a Big 12 battle at 7 p.m. ET on Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium. Texas Tech will be strutting in after a victory while the Horned Frogs will be stumbling in from a defeat.
TCU didn’t finish too far behind, but the squad still lost 32-27 to the Texas Longhorns last week. TCU’s loss came about despite a quality game from RB Zach Evans, who rushed for one TD and 113 yards on 15 carries.
Meanwhile, it was a close one, but last week Texas Tech sidestepped the West Virginia Mountaineers for a 23-20 win. The team ran away with 17 points in the first half and mostly just sat on those in the second to pick up the win. Texas Tech’s RB SaRodorick Thompson filled up the stat sheet, punching in two rushing touchdowns. Thompson had some trouble finding his footing against Texas two weeks ago, so this was a step in the right direction.
Special teams collected 11 points for the Red Raiders. K Jonathan Garibay delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
This next contest is expected to be close, with the Horned Frogs going off at just a 1.5-point favorite. Currently 0-2-1 against the spread, they haven’t been a good investment; on the other hand, Texas Tech is 3-1 ATS.
TCU is now 2-2 while Texas Tech sits at 4-1. A couple defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: TCU is 201st worst in the nation in rushing yards allowed per game, with 204 on average. The Red Raiders have experienced some struggles of their own as they are stumbling into the game with the 228th most passing touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up 11 on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
