The Red Raiders are coming off a tough 38-27 loss to Kansas State this weekend, in which they fell short of their first road win of the season. Texas Tech will get another shot at its first road win of 2022 today against No. 7 Oklahoma State. This conference matchup in Stillwater, Oklahoma should be a high-octane affair between these two offenses.
Texas Tech and their offense will try to get off to a fast start in this one. They have struggled early on down the road and have gotten behind the eight ball with deficits in the first half. They’ll have to avoid that against the Cowboys if they want to have a chance to win.
Defensively, the Red Raiders have played well, especially on their front line. They’ll have a tough job slowing down this Oklahoma State offense and their quarterback Spencer Sanders. Sanders already has 15 total touchdowns on the year and is as talented a passer as he is in the Big 12.
This could be the toughest game on the Texas tech schedule this season, and head coach Joey McGuire will make sure he gets his team ready. It looks like the Red Raiders are ready to take the next step forward and a win against top ten Oklahoma State would surely prove the value of their conference.
