Featured Game | Houston Cougars vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders

What to know about the Texas Tech Red Raiders

Texas Tech has been dominant against Houston in recent years. The Red Raiders 4-1 record against the Cougars since 1992 speaks to that. Texas Tech only fell short by one point in its lone road loss to Houston during that span. The Red Raiders’ defense can carry them to a fourth straight win against the Cougars.

Colin Schooler is the NCAA’s active leader in tackles and tackles for a loss. He’ll spearhead Texas Tech’s linebacker group and wreak havoc against the Cougars. The Red Raiders’ ability to force turnovers by applying pressure to the quarterback could help them cover.

What to know about the Houston Cougars

The Cougars played about as tough of a truncated schedule as you can playing outside of a Power Five conference a season ago, hosting BYU and UCF while also visiting Cincinnati and Memphis. However, that’s not going to earn coach Dana Holgorsen a lot of sympathy after he was given a five-year, $20 million contract to make Houston competitive on the national stage.

Tune returns at quarterback after throwing for 2,048 yards and 15 touchdowns a season ago, while also adding 253 yards on the ground and five rushing touchdowns. He’ll have leading receiver Nathaniel Dell back as well after he caught 29 passes for 428 yards and three touchdowns. The defense should also be improved with several starters expected back including pass-rushing ace David Anenih.
