What there is to know

After a three-game homestand, the Texas Longhorns will be on the road. The Longhorns and the Texas Tech Red Raiders will square off in a Big 12 battle at 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium. Texas should always ride high after a big win, while Texas Tech will be looking to get back into the win column.

Texas was hampered by 103 penalty yards against the UTSA Roadrunners last week, but luckily for them, that wasn’t the story of the game. Texas was the clear winner by a 41-20 margin over UTSA. The score was tied at the break 17-17, but Texas was the better team in the second half. RB Bijan Robinson had a dynamite game for the Longhorns; he rushed for three touchdowns and 183 yards on 20 carries. Robinson put himself in the limelight with a 78-yard TD rush in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, the Red Raiders fell short against the NC State Wolfpack last week, losing 27-14. QB Donovan Smith wasn’t much of a difference maker for Texas Tech; Smith threw two interceptions.

Texas is the favorite in this one, with an expected margin of victory of 6.5 points. They’ve been consistent moneymakers against the spread when favored (2-0), so they might be worth a quick bet.

The Longhorns’ win took them to 2-1 while Texas Tech’s loss put them back to an identical 2-1. A few numbers to keep in mind heading into kickoff: Texas enters the game with just two passing touchdowns allowed, good for 18th-best in the nation. But the Red Raiders rank 16th in the nation in touchdown passes, with nine this season. We will see which of these forces – offensive or defensive – will prevail.
