A Break Down of Texas Tech at Oklahoma

Norman will be center of college football next Saturday, Nov. 22nd. Fans from all over the country will be interested for various reason in this dynamic duo of No. 2 at No. 5.

Texas Tech is undefeated which will cause many to pull for Oklahoma, namely those residing in the Penn State and USC districts of the country—though a Texas Tech loss will most likely not change the much anticipated "Big 12 versus SEC" BCS championship game, it would be a step forward for the Big Ten and Pac-10.

There will also be the oblivious viewer who knows very little about college football—these viewers will be watching the game simply because they heard it will be an air show to rival the Blue Angels. Both teams score a lot...an average of about 50 points a game for each team. The bottom line it will be an exciting for the fans and it should be a close one.

Finally there are the die-hard Red Raider fans and the die-hard Sooner fans who will not be sleeping for the next five days in anticipation of this game to trump all games. This article is for you guys. I will be breaking down every stat I can think of in an attempt to project a winner for this game. Enjoy, Fellas
