Texas Tech vs. West Virginia: Bold Predictions

No. 15 Texas Tech puts their perfect 6-0 record on the line again, this time on a country road at West Virginia (mountain mama). The Mountaineers, under former Tech assistant Dana Holgerson, hope to keep their season alive by upsetting a ranked Big 12 opponent at home for the second time this season.

Here’s our Bold Predictions for tomorrow’s game:

Kerry Hyder led the team in tackles last week from the nose guard position. Who’s the leading tackler this week?

Robert: Fresh Prince of Defense.

Shelby: I’m going with Hyder or Jackson. It’s going to be a big game for Jackson.

Austin: Terrance Bullitt.

Webb and Mayfield haven’t gone a game without throwing at least one interception since SMU. If Brewer doesn’t start, how many picks do the freshmen throw?

Robert: Two.

Shelby: Two.

Austin: One.

WVU converts 29 percent of third downs. Tech’s D holds opponents to 27 percent. Over/under, 28 percent on third down for WVU? 

Robert: Over.

Shelby: Under.

Austin: Under.

SaDale Foster is apparently out as punt returner. Who’s the best bet for his replacement?

Robert: I want to see what Reginald Davis can do.

Shelby: Grant or Thompson.

Austin: Jakeem Grant.

Final score?

Robert: 36-21 Tech.

Shelby: 35-31 Tech.

Austin: 45-31 Tech.
