The Texas Tech Red Raiders will take their high powered offense into Norman to try and pull off the upset of the No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners.

There is little reason to believe they can do this. Texas Tech is 4-2, but those two losses came in their last two games as the difficulty of their schedule increased.

Meanwhile, Oklahoma has flattened everyone that has gotten in their way.

BCS/Top 25 Poll Implications

Oklahoma has no room for error. Consider that they have yet to lose a game, or even come close to losing a game, and have fallen from No. 1 to No. 3, it is clear what kind of pressure they under in every game.

 

Key Storyline:

 

What They're Saying: CBS Sports talks about what Texas Tech must do if they are going to win.

I have a feeling that in order for Texas Tech to win this game, it will have to do so in a shootout. In order to do that, both Washington and Crawford will have to step up and have a big game on the ground. Oklahoma's secondary and pass rush is just too good to expect Seth Doege to continually drop back and find consistent success, so if the Tech running game can keep the offense more balanced, then Texas Tech's chances only increase.

 

Player to Watch Texas Tech: QB Seth Doege

Doege is putting up some huge numbers. He has 2,167 yards, 18 touchdowns and just four interceptions. He is not afraid to make any throw, and he is usually on the mark when he doesn't.

 

Player to Watch Oklahoma: QB Landry Jones

Jones is leading a high powered Oklahoma offense. He is playing at an amazingly high level. He is the best QB NFL prospect not named Andrew Luck.

Jones has 2177 passing yards, 16 touchdowns and six interceptions.

 

Key Matchup: QB Seth Doege vs. Oklahoma Secondary

Texas Tech have very little hope of stopping Oklahoma. That means if the are going to win they are going to have to do it with their offense.

They have proven they can put up points, but they have yet to face a defense as stout as Oklahoma.

 

Prediction: Oklahoma 42, Texas Tech 20

Texas Tech has a very solid offense, but Oklahoma will be able to get enough stops to turn this one into a rout.

They continually drop back and find consistent success, so if the Tech running game can keep the offense more balanced, then Texas Tech's chances only increase.
