Texas Tech will look to follow up an emphatic upset over West Virginia in Week 7 with another Top 25 appointment this Saturday. In it, the No. 17 Red Raiders will hit the road against a No. 23 TCU team desperate for a big win.

At this point in the Horned Frogs’ regular season, a bump up the polls and the consequent subtle boost to their college football odds would be a welcome change to an otherwise unexciting season. They’ve strung together a respectable season thus far but have yet to face a ranked opponent.
The Red Raiders, in contrast, were an unranked entry last weekend, and took the college football betting community by storm, not only beating then-No. 5 West Virginia, but absolutely hammering them. The momentum from the the 35-point victory will inevitably carry over into the next few weeks.
Whether or not said enthusiasm will be enough to get them past TCU and into higher regard on the BCS futures, however, has yet to be determined. With the Big 12 in flux, what we’ve come to expect as the conference’s standard pecking order might be in jeopardy.
That relative uncertainty means fringe level programs like Texas Tech could potentially benefit. Let your voice be heard, bet on the Big 12 today.
