Offensive production won’t be at a premium here as the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs head to Texas Tech to take on the Red Raiders.
Both teams come in off high offensive scoring weeks, as the Red Raiders put up 55, while the Bulldogs were right there at 53.
The Bulldogs responded from a gut wrenching opening week loss to Arkansas with a beatdown of FCS opponent South Carolina State in Week 2.
The Bulldogs offense put up 53 points and a whopping 727 yards of total offense.
This will be a solid matchup for the Bulldogs in terms of the Red Raiders secondary. Louisiana Tech torched South Carolina State through the air and they also held their own against the Razorbacks.
QB Ryan Higgins has tossed for 409 yards and 4 touchdowns this season. Look for him to take plenty of chances down field, especially after seeing the Red Raiders get torched last week deep down the field.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Tech’s loss to Arizona State last week was a true definition of what this Red Raiders program has been over the recent years.
Texas Tech put up a 55 spot on the Sun Devils, but their defense managed just 2 stops overall, as the Sun Devils put up 68 points.
Texas Tech sits 1st in pass yards per game (586.5) and 2nd in total yards (685).
However, their defense ranks near the bottom in almost every defensive category. The Red Raiders have given up an average of 511 yards per game while conceding 331.5 through the air.
That will be the biggest key here in this one. There is no doubt the Red Raiders will put points up. Whether or not they can slow down the Bulldogs air attack will decide this game.
Expect Texas Tech to really put pressure in the backfield, hoping to force some tough and quick decisions.
