  • Big 12 Preview Capsule


    No. 18 Texas Tech (5-1, 2-1 Big 12) at TCU (5-1, 2-1), 3:30 p.m. (ABC)

    Line: Texas Tech by 2.

    Renewal of an instate conference rivalry, and avoiding a second Big 12 loss. With TCU now in the Big 12, this will become an annual game again. The two teams have played only twice since their last Southwest Conference meeting in 1995, both winning at home — Tech 70-35 in 2004, and TCU 12-3 two years later. The series dates back to 1926.
