1) TT doesn't have a physical pass-catching TE like the previous 3 Top Ten teams did, thus easing some of the burden on the LB corp and secondary.
2) Regardless of yards per carry, the fact remains that they run for an average of 134 yards per game as a team. We won't have to stack 8 in the box. Yes, they have a great batch of WRs, but I think it is better than opposing TE you could plant a flag on top of his head.
3) Texas Tech's stats have easily been bolstered by the fact that they played not one, but two Division I-AA teams early in the season. The fact they got a pass on being in the Top Ten is more of an argument than USC being ranked ahead of them.
4) Kansas had zero quality wins (FIU and Sam Houston State?) and were probably the most overrated team in the top 20 until they finally were removed. Texas Tech threw up 63 against Kansas? Stop the presses! Texas throws up almost 60 against Mizzou and it's what else can you show me?
5) Tech runs the same wide-gap offense line splits that Mizzou does. We saw how much difficulty Mizzou had stopping our speedy defense shooting the gaps.
6) Tech had to beat Nebraska in OT and UT had to squeeze by the #8 team in the country? Why does UT get questioned and Texas Tech get a short memory?
7) Texas gets to wrap up its "Orange October" tour by playing Tech (okay it's on Nov 1st) whereas TT, OSU, and OU still have to beat the hell out of each other before the end of the season.
8) Oh...and we have Colt McCoy!
Texas wins by 10 only because it is Lubbock! Hook 'em!
