They are ranked 108th in PPG and 174th in FG%, their offense will have to step it up on Saturday to keep pace with the Baylor Bears. They will be high on momentum after a late fg to upset Texas in their last game.

Free Baylor Bears vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders NCAAB Prediction:
I like Baylor to stay undefeated this season and continuing to trend towards winning the BIG 12 and grabbing a #1 seed come March. The key to this match up will be: will Texas Tech be able to defend the 3pt line where they are ranked 128th in 3pt fg%. Also, I do not think Texas Tech has the offense or depth to stay in the game for 40 minutes. I think Texas Tech will keep this close, or lead at halftime, but Baylor will continue to battle and take over in the second half of the game. But if Baylor gets hot from 3pt range early, it could spell trouble for Texas Tech who does not shoot the three ball well at a 33.33% clip which is 192nd in the country.
