Texas Tech was a surprise is busting Houston’s season last week but this team is always about having games where you think they might be turning the corner and then dashing those hopes. This one is on the road too. First true road game.
Oklahoma State got a big win last week and they could certainly be in a letdown spot but everything we have seen makes it look like this is a reload, not rebuild season. They could run out to something like 9-0 with ease when you look at their schedule.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
The Red Raiders might have saved their coaches job with their win over Houston last week. They did not look good in their opening loss to Ole Miss and a loss to a Group of Five team in a big game like that might have been enough to show Kliff Kingsbury the door.
Texas Tech is all about throwing the ball. The latest trigger man is freshman Alan Bowman and he was an absolute monster last week against Houston with 605 yards and 5 touchdowns
As in almost every Texas Tech game from the era of Mike Leach til now whether they win or lose will depend on whether they can play enough defense. That is hard to predict from game to game.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
It was a little under the radar but the Cowboys came up with a big win last week beating Boise State. They were in control the whole way and closed late and now have a great chance to go on a run and turn some heads.
Justice Hill was the big weapon in the victory averaging almost 9 yards per carry. Quarterback Taylor Cornelius had his fist game without an interception proving he doesn’t have to be great for them to win, just avoid the mistakes that kill your chances.
The Cowboys defense was super stingy against Boise State giving up less than 2 yards per carry to a team that usually runs well. They gave up yardage through the air though and that is what Texas Tech does best.

Free Week 4 NCAA Football Pick
I like the Cowboys at home but the spread makes me nervous in terms of them getting enough stops to do it. It is possible Texas Tech doesn’t even try to run the ball.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oklahoma State -13
I am going to go with the chalk but I think the number comes down a little due to some action on Texas Tech coming off the big win last week. The backdoor makes me nervous.
The key to this one is going to be the first half. Oklahoma State needs to be up by this margin and then hang on because the Red Raiders are never out of it. If the game is close early we will get an exciting finish.
