Saturday’s Oklahoma State at Texas Tech NCAA Football Picks & Analysis:  Texas Tech has gotten away with turning the ball over a lot against TCU and Iowa State but weren’t so lucky last week against Oklahoma.  They will try to bounce back from a 38-30 loss and a minus six turnover margin this week at home against a high powered Oklahoma State passing attack.  The Red Raiders are ninth in college football with 19 turnovers and that can not continue if this team is going to stay in contention in the Big 12 for the rest of the season.  The dueling freshman quarterbacks Davis Webb and Baker Mayfield have been competing for the position all season and neither has shown they can limit the bad decisions.  While they have shown flashes of brilliance, they average almost 40 points per game, it is the big turnover that they need to be worried about this week.  Oklahoma State is having quarterback issues of their own, Clint Chelf started last week against Iowa State after J.W. Walsh started previously, neither has proven to be the long term answer and it has been the run game that has led the Cowboys to a 6-1 record.  Oklahoma State running back Desmond Rolland has been one of the best in the Big 12 and will pose a problem for a Texas Tech defense that has problems in their front seven.  Texas Tech is not a very easy place to play but Oklahoma State has done very well against them in the last few years, winning the last three by a combined 125-27 score.  Oklahoma State, while on the road, has advantages all over the field in this match up. Their more balanced offensive attack, much better turnover ratio, stronger defense and more big game experience will be the reason they get a win on the road in this game.

Oklahoma State at Texas Tech Prediction: 34-27 Oklahoma State
What to expect in this week 9 NCAA Football match up: 
Oklahoma State’s duel threat offense will move the ball without much problem against a questionable Texas Tech defense.  They should use a heavy dose of the running game, especially in the first half, to help keep the high powered Texas Tech passing attack on the sidelines.  Texas Tech has been prone to the big turnover and there’s no reason to think it won’t be their undoing against a Oklahoma State defense that ranks near the top in turnovers forced.  Oklahoma State is much more familiar with big games and their experience will push them to a victory in this one.
