CFB: (10) Texas Tech at (15) OU
Oklahoma's season isn't getting any easier. After a disappointing loss to Texas and a not-so-dominating win over Kansas, the Sooners now host a Texas Tech team that has consistently given them fits in the past and the very next week travel to Baylor to face the eighth-ranked Bears. The Sooners will hope to ride their hot rushing game, but it won't come easily against a Red Raiders squad that is giving up just 123 rushing yards per game. The Big 12 title is up for grabs, and the winner of this game will take a big step forward.
