WIN

Here we have yet another huge game in the Big-12, as the #1 Longhorns travel to Lubbock to take on Texas Tech. The Longhorns have had the toughest stretch of four games, perhaps, than any team in college football history. They have played their last three against unbeaten teams in Oklahoma, Missouri and Oklahoma State. Tech will be their fourth consecutive game against an unbeaten team, and it will be their first true road game of the four. Tech has had the offense for several years, but now have a defense. It may not be on the same par as the offense, but it is much, much tougher than past units. While Tech has fumbled on the road in the past, a tell-tale sign that this Tech team might be different is their 4-0 mark this year away from home, including a pounding of a solid Jayhawks team last week. This is a very tough spot for Texas, as they have to get it up mentally, emotionally and physically for a fourth straight week. And, for the first time it will have to come without the boost from their home crowd. This team has done a tremendous job avoiding any kind of letdown for three straight weeks, but can they really do it a fourth straight time, on the road? You could see last week the toll beginning to take place as they squeaked by a very good Oklahoma State at home. I think Tech is going to bring a very high level of energy to this one, and the difference between these teams is not that great. I seriously doubt Texas can sustain that kind of energy on the road, and for a fourth consecutive week. Upset alert! Tech covers, and has a good shot at the outright win.
