This s a dangerous time for Texas Tech and head coach Kliff Kingsbury.
The team really is playing better, and it really is solid, but it can’t win. The offense hasn’t been enough to overcome a struggling defense that’s allowed 41 points or more in four of the six Big 12 games. However, win two of the last three games, and it’s off to a bowl game.
Can the Red Raiders beat TCU and/or at Texas? If they’re not good enough to beat Baylor, then no.
The Bears are just dangerous enough to pull off their second win.
They got by Kansas without a problem to finally get the first win of the season, and while they’re inconsistent, they’re starting to show some explosion.
Win this, and the Bears would be an X factor over the final few weeks giants Iowa State and TCU, with a shot at screwing up the Big 12 race.
One Reason Why Baylor Will Win
Charlie Brewer is on.
The freshman quarterback got a little bit of work in over a few weeks to try getting the offense going – throwing two touchdown passes late in the near-comeback against West Virginia – and he was okay against Texas.
And then he took target practice against Kansas.
The Jayhawks give up yards and big plays to everyone, but Brewer’s performance was still impressive, completing 23-of-29 passes for 315 yards and three scores.
Everyone has a rough time stopping decent passing teams in the Big 12, but the Red Raiders aren’t doing enough to stop anyone from throwing. Everyone’s getting fat on third downs – Iowa State, Oklahoma and Kansas State combined to roll for around 52% of their chances.
One Reason Why Texas Tech Will Win
Iowa State’s defense kept the Red Raiders under wraps, but Nic Shimonek and company have been good for four touchdowns a game in three of the last four, and cranked up three scoring throws against Kansas.
Shimonek will throw for four touchdowns against Baylor.
Baylor stopped Kansas, but everyone but Kansas State was able to stop the KU passing attack.
The Bear secondary has been rolled, allowing Will Grier and West Virginia to come up with 375 yards and five scores, and Mason Rudolph and Oklahoma State to throw for 471 yards and three touchdowns.
Both teams are going to throw, but Texas Tech will do it better.
What’s Going To Happen
It won’t be Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State, but it’ll be a wild shootout with a whole lot of passing yards and plenty of offensive swings.
In AT&T Stadium, both teams will up their game in a battle that’ll go deep into the fourth quarter.
Baylor will be solid, but Texas Tech needs a strong performance, and it’ll get it.
The Red Raiders will consistently move the ball better, especially when they have to in the clutch.
