Baylor vs. Texas Tech: Bears seek bowl eligibility against Red Raiders

Ronald Martinez

After upsetting then-No. 1 Kansas State, Baylor will try to build on its momentum against Texas Tech Saturday.

The Baylor Bears and Texas Tech Red Raiders renew their rivalry Saturday, as the teams are set for a meeting at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

For the Bears (5-5, 2-5 Big 12), Saturday's contest is a chance to reach bowl eligibility. Baylor is just 2-5 in its last seven games, but the team is coming off what was perhaps the biggest upset of this college football season. The Bears knocked off then-No. 1 and undefeated Kansas State, 52-24, in Waco, Texas, on Saturday, Nov. 17. Baylor racked up 580 yards on the Wildcats, and the Bears' defense forced three Collin Klein interceptions.

Texas Tech (7-4, 4-4) renews its most-played rivalry when the Red Raiders square off against Baylor. The teams have met for 70 games, with Tech holding a 36-33-1 advantage in the series. The Red Raiders started the season with a surprising 6-1 record but have come back to earth in recent weeks. Tech has lost three of its last four games, and its only win during that stretch was a 41-34 double overtime victory over lowly Kansas.

Baylor and Texas Tech meet Saturday at 1:30 p.m. CT. The game will be televised on FOX.
