The TCU Horned Frogs will make the four-hour trip to Lubbock to take on the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
HISTORY: These two schools met in every season from 1955 to 1995, and they revved things back up in 2012 when the Horned Frogs joined the Big 12. Texas Tech leads the all-time series 32-28-3, but TCU has won five of the last seven meetings.
TCU Horned Frogs
TCU followed up a home loss arch rival SMU with another home last to in-state Texas last weeks. The Horned Frogs couldn’t stop the Longhorns ground game, and they picked Northwestern Wildcats have traded their first four games of the season. After losing on the road to Duke, Northwestern returned home and picked up a big win over Ohio 35-6, successfully covering their first spread of the season.
Max Duggan will look to respond after losing back-to-back games for the first time in his career. The junior quarterback completed 20 of 28 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown in the loss to Texas last weekend.
Zach Evans led the backfield with another strong performance against Texas. After running for 113 yards on 15 carries, and catching three passes for 70 yards, including a 46-yard touchdown against SMU, Evans recorded an identical line of 15 carries and 113 yards against the Longhorns.
Senior wideout Taye Barber leads the team in receiving after snagging five passes for 114 yards, including a 60-yard touchdown. Quentin Johnson missed last weeks after bringing in five catches for 95 yards and two scores against Cal.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Texas Tech responded to their big loss to Texas with a strong road win over West Virginia. The Red Raiders took 17-0 lead into the locker room and held off a late rally to knock off the Mountaineers in Morgantown, 23-20.
After coming on and tossing three scores against Texas, Henry Colombi returned the starting lineup. The Utah State transfer managed the game very well, going 23-34 for 266 passing yards, and leading the team into go-ahead field goal range.
The Red Raiders are missing running back Tajh Brooks’ presence, and they haven’t been able to do much on the ground over the past two weeks. SaRodorick Thompson did manage to score twice while leading the backfield with 48 rushing yards.
Texas Tech might also head into this game without two-time leading receiver Erik Ezukanma. Troy transfer Kaylon Geiger Sr. stepped up in his absence and is second on the team in both catches (21) and yards (314).

Another Saturday, another Texas college football rivalry. Both schools have been on the wrong side of bouts with the Longhorns, but they both enter this bout with a shot to take it. This could be one of the best games of the weekend.
4* Free Week 6 NCAA Betting Pick: TCU ML (-115)
Texas Tech is missing a lot of pieces. Colombi has stepped in admirably starting quarterback Tyler Shough, but the absences in the backfield and on the outside bring question marks. A talented TCU defense will come into town, and after nearly defeating Texas last week and suffering their second close defeat in as many weeks, they will be looking to bounce back here. We like Gary Patterson’s experienced team here.
Take TCUs game spread on the road, as the Horned Frogs will look to avoid a third straight loss.
