Total: 
58.5

The Texas Tech Red Raiders (5-5) will host the TCU Horned Frogs (8-2) at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock, Texas for a high noon clash with Big 12 stipulations on the line. The contest will take place on Saturday, November 11th, 2017 at 12:00 PM EST. The game will be broadcasted for regional audiences on FOX Sports Network. The Red Raiders own a win in the most recent meeting last year in Fort Worth. In 2016, the Red Raiders would edge out the Frogs in an overtime thriller when they came up with a huge 27-24 victory. The last two meetings have all been settled by a field goal.

TCU Horned Frogs at Texas Tech Red Raiders Overview

The Horned Frogs come in off a throttling suffered at the hands of the Big 12’s two-time defending champions, Oklahoma. The loss was TCU’s second of the season and puts their College Football Playoff hopes on ice. However, the Frogs still have plenty to play for as they will get Oklahoma in a rematch for the Big 12 title and a New Year’s Six Bowl berth they win out.

The Red Raiders have gotten off the snide in their most recent outing when they tackled their old foe Baylor in a 38-24 win, last Saturday. The Red Raiders need to win one of their next two outings to secure bowl eligibility. The Red Raiders were at one point ranked in the top-25 this season when they were 4-1. They would continue on to lose four straight before snapping the streak against the Bears.

TCU Horned Frogs at Texas Tech Red Raiders ATS Prediction

Texas Tech’s win on Saturday was discredited by virtue of the fact they achieved it against a team that has just one win this season. Situationally, this scenario sets up as a bounce-back for TCU but we would advise takers to think again. Tech will come into this contest with home field advantage and play with reckless abandon be that their season finale is a tough one to get that much needed sixth win. With bowl eligibility on the line expect the Red Raiders to give TCU everything it has.
