All the drama is finally out of the way and this will not be Les Miles’ last game as Tigers head coach.
LSU will look to cap off a roller coaster season with a 9th win when they take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders in the ADVOCARE V100 TEXAS BOWL.
Texas Tech has proven to be no pushover in terms of their offensive production, but the defensive struggles all season have led them to this current spot.
The LSU Tigers have had a season filled of drama, but that all came to a screeching halt when players carried head coach Les Miles off the field following the teams win in the final game of the season.
Les Miles was said to be stepping down and boosters were going to buy him out of his contract. The successful coach was ready to leave when players wouldn’t let him. Miles is staying and now LSU will look to finish their season off on a high note with a win over Texas Tech.
RB Leonard Fournette leads an offense that averaged 30.7 points per game during the regular season. The Tigers offense only went as far as Fournette would take them.
The tailback rushed for 159 yards in the season finale against Texas A&M, which allowed him surpass the school’s single season record.
LSU’s defense will have their work cut out for them, but they do have a lot to build off of. The Tigers defense allowed just 24.0 points against per game this season.
When you hear the word “offense” one of first schools that comes to mind is Texas Tech.
The Red Raiders rank 2nd in scoring with 46.6 points per game and hold the No. 2 passing offense in the nation with 389.7 yards per game. Texas Tech’s high flying pass attack is led by QB Patrick Mahomes.
Mahomes sits 3rd in the nation with 4283 yards. He showed off his dual threat ability as he threw for 32 touchdowns and rushed for 10 more during the regular season.
Texas Tech won their final two games of the season and the first of those two came in a 59-44 win over Kansas State that clinched their bowl berth. Texas Tech followed that up with an exciting back and forth win over Texas 48-45 on Thanksgiving night.
While the Red Raiders hold the 2nd best scoring offense in the nation, they are one of the worst scoring defenses in the nation as they allow 42.6 points against.

Free TEXAS BOWL NCAA Football Prediction
This game has the potential to be an absolute shootout. Both offenses can move the ball, but the game changer will be the Tigers defense. If they can do what they’ve done all year and slow down offenses, this game will be a blowout.
That’s easier said than done though, consider how good the pass attack is for the Red Raiders.
