Texas Tech Red Raiders vs Iowa State Cyclones Odds, Prediction, and Pick
The Texas Tech Red Raiders were fresh off of back to back tough losses to top 25 teams in Texas A&M and Kansas State, and then they pulled off the biggest upset of all against the Oklahoma Sooners. This all but eliminated the Sooners chances at a national title, and put the Red Raiders in the top 25. Now comes a game against the reeling Iowa State Cyclones, who have lost four games in a row and now find themselves sitting at the bottom of the Big 12. Texas Tech on the other hand is 5-2 with a 2-2 conference record, in what might be the toughest conference in all of college football. The Red Raiders can smell a big time bowl berth if they are able to get on a winning streak to end the season, and to do that, they'll have to win big against this Cyclones team on Saturday.
The Red Raiders have been led by their high powered offense including quarterback Seth Doege who has 2608 yards, 22 touchdowns, and only 4 interceptions, and also by running back Eric Stephens with 555 yards and 8 touchdowns. The Texas Tech offense is one of the best in college football, and will now go up against a Cyclones defense that has struggled quite a bit this year, especially in conference play. Iowa State will need a big game out of quarterback Steele Jantz to have a shot in this game on the road against a fired up Texas Tech crowd who will be welcoming home their Red Raiders from that massive upset over Oklahoma. This game will kick off at 7:00pm EST.

It's tough to see Iowa State being able to stop the Texas Tech offense in this one. While I do think that the Cyclones will be able to put up some points, I don't think it will be nearly enough to knock off the Red Raiders. I think that Texas Tech could possibly put up over 50 on Saturday, and pull off a three or four touchdown win at home in front of an electrified crowd. I'm taking Texas Tech to win big here.

The line of Texas Tech -15 seems about right at home, but Iowa State just hasn't given me any reason to think that they will be able to turn their season around right now. I don't like the match-ups that they have against the Red Raiders, and I think that the combination of Doege and Stephens will cause problems for the Cyclones all night. I'm picking the Texas Tech Red Raiders to win and cover the -15 here.
- Pick: Texas Tech Red Raiders -15
