OSU plays at Texas Tech on Saturday in a game that will stamp the Cowboys as a Big 12 title contender or knock them from the conference race. And the same is true of Tech.
OSU is largely untested. So was Texas Tech, until last Saturday, when the Red Raiders lost 38-30 at OU.
Now Tech is ranked 15th, OSU 18th.
A recurring theme from last week was whether Tech was overrated. The Red Raiders were 10th in the BCS, despite having played a weak schedule. Tech beat TCU when the Horned Frogs were ranked 24th, early in the season, but TCU has proven to be a fraud and the rest of Tech’s schedule is woeful. Tech figured to be 6-1 at worst when it went to Norman. Instead, Tech was 7-0 and in the top 10.
If you’re trying to gauge OSU’s hopes this Saturday – or Tech’s, for that matter – then it’s of interest to determine if the Red Raiders or Cowboys indeed are overrated.
