Texas Tech favored by seven to beat struggling Texas

Erich Schlegel

The total has gone over in eight of Texas' last 10 games when playing Texas Tech.

While they managed to pull out a win as Case McCoy threw a touchdown pass to D.J. Grant with 12 seconds remaining, the No. 23 Texas Longhorns inspired no one with their come-from-behind win against Kansas. After their defense gave up 161 points in three weeks, it was the offense that struggled against the Jayhawks before David Ash was benched in favor of McCoy.

With Ash back in as the starter, the line for the Longhorns' game against the No. 18 Texas Tech Red Raiders opened at 2.5 points in favor of Texas Tech, but has since swelled to seven points.

The Red Raiders have lost two games, just as the Longhorns have. However, their losses came to Kansas State and Oklahoma, the No. 2 and No. 12 teams in the most recent BCS standings, respectively.

The over/under for the game is set at 67, which would have been a very high mark for the Red Raiders just a couple of weeks ago. After keeping five of their first six opponents to less than 14 points, Texas Tech allowed 108 points in the last two weeks.
