Action Network | College Football Odds & Picks for Oklahoma State vs. Texas Tech: Cowboys Poised to Cover in Lubbock

Even though Texas Tech has a very high-powered offense, this is a great matchup for Oklahoma State, which has the best defense the Red Raiders have seen since the beginning of September.

The struggles of the Texas Tech defense are going to be all too apparent as well if Oklahoma State’s offense continues to click like it did against TCU last weekend.

I have Oklahoma State projected at -14.7, so I think there’s some value on the Cowboys at -10 or better.

Athlon Sports’ Allen Kenney | Oklahoma State vs. Texas Tech Football Prediction and Preview

The Oklahoma State Cowboys have owned the Texas Tech Red Raiders for the last decade, rolling up eight wins in the last 10 meetings between the two squads. The Pokes (9-1, 6-1 Big 12) have more on the line this year than usual when the two squads take the field on Saturday evening.

An OSU win would keep the team on track for an appearance in the Big 12 title game in December and ensure their hopes of making the College Football Playoff remain intact. For Tech (6-4, 3-4), the goal is attaining the program’s first guarantee of a winning season since 2015. A victory on Saturday would give the Red Raiders a seventh win.

Dallas Morning News’ Ryan Mainville | The Main Point: Texas Tech’s next offensive coordinator, Mark Adams’ rotation, and recruiting talk

ME: It sounded like Mike Siravo was penciled in as defensive coordinator in the days after McGuire’s hiring, but now all eyes are on Patrick Toney. The defensive coordinator for Louisiana has consistently put together some of the nation’s best defenses. The question is if you want to add a rather inexperienced coordinator to the staff of a first year head coach. Offensive coordinator names are all over the place, which is especially heightened with Cumbie still being evaluated. There’s some noise on Zach Kittley and Garrett Riley to fill that position if it’s not Cumbie. But as of right now, all of McGuire’s hires have been on the recruiting side. James Blanchard went with him from Baylor and it sounds like Cody Bellaire of LSU will join the Red Raiders after the season.
