Bold predictions for the Texas vs. Texas Tech game

The Texas Longhorns and Texas Tech Red Raiders meet for what could be their final game in Lubbock for a long time. The matchup is significant this year because of what both teams have already accomplished through the first three weeks.

Both teams are 2-1 and have played well in against good competition. Texas fell by one point to Alabama and beat reigning Conference-USA champion UTSA, 41-20. Texas Tech defeated a ranked Houston team in overtime and played a competitive game on the road against NC State last week.

This upcoming game is significant for both teams’ chances to compete in a wide open Big 12. It will be the first matchup for each team in conference play.

Let’s look at a few potential surprises for this week’s game.

This feels bold because I believe Texas is a much better team than Texas Tech. There are issues that complicate the Longhorns winning in dominant fashion. Both Steve Sarkisian’s quarterbacks are dinged up, and Texas presumably won’t want to put either in harm’s way. The Longhorns might go with a more cautious offensive approach.
