Texas Tech at Oklahoma (-6.5)
This is another one that looked like it would be a big one until just a couple of weeks ago, when Oklahoma dropped the Red River Rivalry to Texas. #BigGameBob’d. On the other said, the oh so dreamy Kliff Kingsbury has returned to Lubbock, and has the Red Raiders at 7-0. Things are about to get much more interesting for the the rookie head coach though, with a trip to Norman this week, before hosting Oklahoma State next week.
This is a big step up in competition for Tech, with the only other top 25 opponent this season being a severely undermanned TCU team that came to Lubbock at #24. Kingsbury has his alma mater trending in the right direction, but I think his luck runs out this week. I’ll take the Sooners and give you the 6.5 points.
