Oklahoma, Texas and West Virginia are currently tied for first place in the Big 12 at 4-1, with UT and WVU playing one another on Saturday. The Sooners, of course, need to win out to have any shot of making the College Football Playoff. That means if OU wins, it will be tied for first place with the winner of UT/WVU and if Tech wins, it will be tied with a slew of teams for second place and would still be very much in the running. On the other side, Tech has a chance to compete for a spot in Arlington after being picked to finish 8th in the Big 12 preseason poll. Iowa State and Texas Tech are lurking close behind at 3-2.

Levy, a long-time SportsCenter anchor, returned to the college football broadcast booth in 2016. Griese, a former Michigan quarterback, played in the NFL from 1998-2009 before joining ESPN.

Betting Preview for the Texas Tech Red Raiders vs Oklahoma Sooners College Basketball Game on February 9, 2019

Baker Mayfield and Patrick Mahomes will not be on the field Saturday (though they will face off in Cleveland on Sunday), but I still expect this to be a high-scoring game. Kliff will have to stew for another year because OUs six-game series win streak isnt ending Saturday night. Sooners win in a high-scoring affair, but avoid a shootout. Kliff Kingsbury has never beaten Oklahoma, and that is in large part because he willingly handed OU the greatest quarterback in college football history.

The Red Raiders come into this game with a record of 2-1 this season. Opponents are completing 50% of the passes they throw against them and averaging 6.1 yards per attempt. When talking about rushing yards, Texas Tech is giving up 172.7 yards per game which has them at 8th in the Big 12 and 93rd in the nation.

To be in a battle for a starting position against an experienced junior during a new regime says a lot about Matt Wells trust in Matthews. Matthews has forced the OR against two-year letterman Riko Jeffers. Why not go with another freshman? Unlike Ezukanma, hes a true freshman and Tech was his only Power Five Conference offer. If he gets the opportunity against Montana State, he will need to make the most of his opportunities to prove himself.

Throughout this week, there's been a lot of recollection about the 2016 Oklahoma-Texas Tech game featuring quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Pat Mahomes, and 1,708 combined yards. While this edition of the game doesn't feature as much star power, Sooners quarterback Kyler Murray is a bona fide Heisman Trophy contender.
