Texas Tech vs. Houston Fearless Prediction & Game Preview

What’s Going To Happen

Get ready for the Houston offense to break out.

Every once in a while – like at times in the second half against ASU – the Texas Tech attack bogs down. It’ll have just enough problems against the Cougar defense early, while Allen will take target practice against the Red Raider secondary.


Make it so. GO COOGS!!!


They have us holding Tech to 23 points. That’s some respect for our D. We’ll see how the young DBs respond to a better passing attack. Good practice for USF and Memphis to come.


And one going the other way


Final Analysis
_ _
Yes, the Houston defense has been great statistically through two games, but it has yet to see an offense anywhere close to what Texas Tech is bringing to town with Kilff Kingsbury calling the plays, Nic Shimonek throwing the ball and wide receivers such as Keke Coutee and Dylan Cantrell on the other end. Houston’s defense has capitalized on 15 tackles for a loss in the early part of the schedule, but that should be negated by Texas Tech’s ability to get the ball out of Shimonek’s hands very quickly.
_ _
Also, Houston’s offense has been solid, but far from the fine-tuned machine it needs to be to keep up with the Red Raiders. Maybe this is the game in which Kyle Allen finally starts to feel comfortable and has a breakout performance, and if there is ever a defense that should allow him to get going, it’s Texas Tech’s.
_ _
But, this game means much more to Kingsbury, who is desperately fighting to keep his job. The Red Raiders, who have struggled in recent seasons, are not about to be caught looking ahead to Oklahoma State next week.

Prediction: Texas Tech 41, Houston 35

That second paragraph sounds like what I was reading heading into the 2016 Louisville game.

This article mirrors my sentiment. Tech is not good and has played garbage teams to this point. Coogs are going to ROLL.
