Texas Tech (2-1) at No. 24 Oklahoma State (2-1)

Thursday 7:30 p.m. ET – ESPN

Line: Texas Tech between -13.5 and -14.5

Texas Tech returns to the field following a bye week and a loss to Arkansas.  The Raiders are scoring 33 points a game, but giving up almost 37.  Davis Webb is second in the conference with 327 passing yards a game and leads with ten touchdown passes. Tech rushes for 170 per game, and both DeAndre Washington and Justin Stockton both average over 60 rushing yards a game.  Brad Marquez is tied for second in the conference with five touchdowns (all receiving) and Jakeem Grant is third with 6.7 catches per game.

The Raider defense is struggling, giving up 297 yards a game.  They gave up 438 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground.  The pass defense gives up just 135 yards a game, but teams have not needed to throw much.

Daxx Garman starts his second game for the Cowboys and they did not miss a beat in his first start, scoring 43 points.  The trio of Tyreek Hill, Rennie Childs and Desmond Roland  all have rushed for at least 120 yards on the season and have scored a total of five touchdowns.  Hill also leads the team with nine receptions but is a possession receiver.  Three other receivers have at least 150 yards and one touchdown on the season.
