Welcome to this edition of “Fantasy Land,” where we discuss topics relating to Texas Tech winning football games in Weeks 9-11 of its 2010 gridiron campaign.

This week, after an ugly loss to the Aggies in College Station, we look skeptically ahead to a Week 10 visit to Lubbock by the 7-1, 12th-ranked Missouri Tigers.

Missouri is fresh off a disappointing 31-17 loss in Lincoln to the 7-1, No. 7 Nebraska Cornhuskers.

The Cornhuskers handed the Tigers their first defeat on what was a perfect season including wins over Illinois, Texas A&M and a Week 8, 36-27 home victory over then-No. 1 Oklahoma.

The Red Raiders' 45-27 beat down at the hands of Texas A&M provides little confidence that Tech can muster a win against Missouri squad that has proven that they belong in the Big 12 title race.
