Texas tech is looking for one more win to get to the magic six. They have a home game next week but this is a winnable spot against a KSU team that is nothing special this season.
Kansas State looks to be at the end of their remarkable run under the guidance of Bill Snyder. They barely beat Kansas last week and getting the two wins they need for a bowl looks unlikely.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Red Raiders played an exciting game against Texas last week but in typical Tech fashion it was the defense that let them down, giving up a late score at home after tying it up. It is kind of like broken record at this point.
Jett Duffey is not your typical gunslinger at Texas Tech. It is not that he is shy about throwing the ball but he can also run it. He is actually the leading rusher for the Red Raiders this season. When was the last time a QB did that.
Texas Tech’s defense is once again less than stellar. Still they take on a light offense in this one and should be able to move the ball well against KSU. I am on upset watch.
Kansas State Wildcats
This is beginning to look like the end of the road of the Bill Snyder era. They are going to have to win their final two just to get to a bowl and I am not sure they can win even one based on what we have seen.
Offense has been hard to come by this season for the Wildcats. Quarterback Skylar Thompson is questionable for this one but even though this is a run first team they need some threat of a pass to open it up.
The defense has been OK this season but Texas Tech is one of those teams that is relentless in their attack. Unless the Wildcats are able to move the ball and kill clock they are not going to be able to keep the Red Raiders at bay.

Only one win separates these teams so the fact that Tech is favoured on the road tells you a lot. I like that side too
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Texas Tech -6
I think this one comes down to the fact that the Texas Tech offense is just going to be too much. Maybe the weather is a factor.
K-State might have a shot if they can get an early but there is no way this group can play catchup.
