This will be the seventh-consecutive season where Texas Tech (3-0) and Baylor (2-0) have met at a neutral site as the two schools moved their annual game to the DFW Metroplex prior to the 2009 season.
Baylor football’s Big 12 opener against Texas Tech on October. 3 in Arlington, Texas, will start at 2:30 p.m., the league office announced Monday. The Red Raiders host TCU Saturday, before taking on the Bears next weekend.
While TCU is a top team in college football and is expected by many to make the CFP, Texas Tech enters this contest with some momentum. The Red Raiders quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, seems to be improving. “We can’t wait to see Jones AT&T Stadium rocking this Saturday afternoon!”
“The Horned Frogs had half of their defense to replace after last season and that was before being rocked by injuries that include standout CB Ranthony Texada, safety Kenny Iloka, LB Sammy Douglas and DE James McFarland”, Feldman writes.
The 82-27 loss against the TCU Horned Frogs has haunted Tech for the past year, but Coach Kingsbury says this is a different team from the one that played TCU last year. OSU is plus-6 (plus-2.0 per game, tied for fourth) for the season heading into Saturday’s game at Texas after collecting seven turnovers in last week’s 69-14 rout of UTSA. But he’s not going to outshine Trevone Boykin. However, don’t expect things to get too far out of hand.
