This week Chris is providing The Saturday Edge audience with a complimentary college football pick from the Big 12.
TCU +2.5 vs. Texas Tech
Where have I seen this story before? Texas Tech upsets a team at home, and then plays a decent opponent the following week, only to lay an egg. Same thing happened last year- Tech upset Oklahoma at home, the following week hosted Iowa State and lost by 34. In 2010, Tech upset #12 Missouri at home, and then lost by 38 the following week to Oklahoma. In 2009, Tech upsets #15 Nebraska on the road, and then loses at home to A&M the following week by 22. I really like TCU’s resilience last week and was impressed by their 28 point win at a decent Baylor team last week. I think TCU is the better team and has the better defense and Tech hasn’t shown me they can be consistent against two solid opponents two weeks in a row.
TCU- 34 Texas Tech- 27
