The Sooners are laying more than two touchdowns in this game that can be seen on ABC. Oklahoma is still in a good position in the Big 12 even if they are not in the national title race. The Sooners trail Oklahoma State by a game and a half and Baylor by a half game but they face both of those two teams later this month. The Sooners have been far better this season at home than on the road which is why they are such big favorites in this game.
Texas Tech got a huge win last week as they upset Missouri. The win got them thinking about a bowl game.

The Texas Tech defense actually showed up last week but they face a much tougher task in this week’s game vs. Oklahoma.
