SCOUTING TEXAS TECH

Record: 7-0 overall, 4-0 Big 12; coming off a 37-27 win at West Virginia

The case for Texas Tech Saturday: Texas Tech beat Oklahoma the last time it visited Norman, and this Tech team is a whole lot better than that one was.

The case against Texas Tech Saturday: The Red Raiders have played a relatively weak schedule so far, so it's tough to know exactly how good they really are. This will be their toughest test this season to date.
