The gauntlet continues for #1 Texas on Saturday as they face #6 Texas Tech.  The Longhorns have had to face three teams ranked 11th or better the past three weeks and now must face another one on the road.  Texas has proven their worth with wins over Oklahoma, Missouri and Oklahoma State and now must face a high-powered Red Raiders team on Saturday.
SBG Global reports that early College Football betting has the public taking Texas on the Road.

 

Saturday’s game is the last really tough one for Texas as their last three opponents are ranked outside of the Top 25. Texas Tech though is just starting their tough stretch.  After Texas on Saturday, they face Oklahoma State and Oklahoma.  The Red Raiders have been scoring points in bunches led by quarterback Graham Harrell who is first in the nation in completions and fifth in touchdowns.  He could have success against a Texas secondary that is giving up 265.5 passing yards per game, which is 9th worst in the country.  It could be a shootout on Saturday considering Texas has a quarterback of their own in Colt McCoy who leads the nation in completion percentage at 81.8 percent.  McCoy is also the leading candidate to win this year’s Heisman Trophy. 

 

The Longhorns have averaged 48 points per game in their last five games against Texas Tech, all wins.  Texas leads the all-time series against Texas Tech 42-14.
