Texas Tech Red Raiders at Kansas Jayhawks
Texas Tech at Kansas, Total 62: The Jayhawks fired their offensive coordinator during their recent bye week and promoted Brent Dearmon to the position. The results were fantastic for the faster-paced, higher-tempo Kansas offense in their first game with the new OC. They piled up 48 points and 569 total yards in a wildly entertaining 50-48 loss to Texas.
I expect QB Carter Stanley and the revamped Jayhawks attack to do a lot of damage again here facing a struggling Texas Tech defense which has allowed 55, 35, 33 and 34 points in their last four games. On the flip side, I think Texas Tech’s own uptempo offense will have success with QB Jett Duffey who has gotten progressively better at the QB position for the Red Raiders in the absence of their opening-week starter Alan Bowman, who remains out due to injury.
Texas Tech has averaged 33 points per game in their last three games and Kansas’ defense remains a bottom-tier unit. Expect plenty of points. OVER
