Texas Tech: O-ver-rat-ed!

Texas Tech is having a fantastic season. Undefeated. Largely untested. Ranked 10th in the BCS.

Well, we agree — which doesn’t always happen! — that the Red Raiders are overrated. Obviously, ratings don’t determine our picks, but in this case, Berry and I believe this is a much closer matchup than the rankings might suggest. And since it’s being played in Norman, we’re both giving the nod to the Sooners.

Want to know why we’re smacking Texas Tech with the overrated tag?
