→Location: Lubbock, Texas

→Nickname: Red Raiders

→Record: 10-0, 6-0 Big 12

→Last game: The Red Raiders scored on seven straight possessions and Graham Harrell threw for six TDs as Tech rolled past Oklahoma State 56-20 last weekend.

→Best player: Wide receiver Michael Crabtree is a star, but at the moment Harrell is the favorite to win the Heisman. Harrell has thrown for 4,077 yards and 36 TDs to just five interceptions.

→Why they could win: The Red Raider offense has been invincible lately, but improved defense is why Tech is in the national title hunt. The Red Raiders are second in the Big 12 in total defense, allowing 351 yards a game.

→Why they could lose: The only offense capable of outscoring Tech resides in Norman, a place the Red Raiders have struggled offensively under Mike Leach.
