Well, this one could be exciting.

The Oklahoma Sooners travel down to Lubbock to take on Texas Tech, and their Air Raid offense, Saturday for a morning kick-off.

This one scares me. It's in Lubbock.

The refs haven't made the best calls for the Sooners over the past few years in their stadium, and have cost us games. Their offense is still extremely good, can still score on any play, and they have playmakers to help them do so.

The Oklahoma offense, however, doesn't have that same reputation right now. It's still disappointing going from a record-setting year, offensive-wise, to not being able to score a touchdown against Nebraska.

DeMarco Murray will try to get his rhythm back and establish an early running game along with Chris Brown.

Ryan Broyles will try to continue to play like Ryan Broyles, and be the only true playmaker the Sooners currently have. He is catching just about everything and making people miss.

Another problem I'm concerned with is that Texas Tech actually have a defense now.

They're not just trying to out-score their opponent. They played a tough game against Oklahoma State and will look to bounce back at home.

There will be a crazy crowd as always, and I'm worried the Oklahoma line will get rattled and make too many mistakes.

I do think it will be a low-scoring game in the teens, with the quick defense that Oklahoma is lucky enough to have this year. Also, Potts and the Raider offense are off right now and are having a hard time staying consistent.

This one is a toss-up. As much as I hate to say it, I'm gonna say Texas Tech takes it. This one is a close one and will have some crazy officiating call that will decide the game.
