While Tech proved they are an elite team at home at night, with a win over #1 Texas and blowing out a solid Oklahoma State team, they have been exposed as frauds on the road against good teams. The OU/Tech game was over by the 1st quarter... a pathetic, embarrassing performance by the Red Raiders. Amazing what happens when you don't have the luxury of playing at home.
With this turn of events, could Texas Tech even beat Missouri in Arrowhead in the Big XII championship game if it comes to that? Missouri pounded them last year as well at home.
Unfortunately, it looks like OU will jump us in the polls if they beat OK State. The humans already like OU (giving them 1st place votes already!?), and while the computers like us now, the deficit will decrease if OU beats OSU. That's why I'm rooting for OSU to pull off the upset. Tech will advance to the title game with the head to head victory over us, but will have to deal with a motivated, written off Mizzou team that's hoping for a BCS Bowl they couldn't get last year. I think the Tigers could pull it off.
This is huge obviously, as that would definitely solidify us as #1 or #2 in the final BCS rankings.
If this scenario pans out, who wins between Tech and Mizzou?
Texas Tech (27 votes)
Missouri (35 votes)
