Texas vs. Texas Tech prediction roundtable with the Campus Insiders staff. Breaking down what will happen in Saturday’s Big 12 battle between the Longhorns and Red Raiders at Jones AT&T Stadium.


Jeff Bartl

Both teams just might score 50. It’ll be a fun one to watch for offensive enthusiasts, but I think it’ll be Texas’ important stop of Texas Tech late that ends up deciding this one. Shane Buechele outshines Patrick Mahomes and the Longhorns pick up a close victory.

Jonathan Bass

I legitimately do not know what to expect in this, given that both teams are extremely flawed. Texas Tech has been held under 30 points twice in the past three games, which is quite an oddity for a Kliff Kingsbury offense. I’ll go with the Longhorns here, on the assumption that their mercurial defense shows up and does just enough to slow down Patrick Mahomes (and by just enough I mean not hurting him, as was dumbly said by Texas linebacker Breckyn Hager earlier in the week).

Robert Judin

Kliff Kingsbury is awesome. But being awesome doesn’t help you win football games. Patrick Mahomes II is expected to play despite a shoulder injury, and he’ll end up slingin’ the rock like he always does for the Red Raiders. But Shane Buechele will have a much bigger night, and D’Onta Foreman will gash the Texas Tech defense from start to finish in a Longhorns victory.

Dave Miller

This is the type of game that Texas must play well in and show improvement for Charlie Strong to have any chance at a fourth year in Austin. The win over Baylor means nothing if business isn’t taken care of against the Red Raiders. Expect points in this one, as both defenses leave a lot to be desired. That Longhorns secondary will be exploited by Patrick Mahomes, and the Red Raiders keep up the momentum following last week’s win over TCU. I’d pick Texas if it had 11 D’Onta Foremans each on offense and defense, but the ‘Horns do not.

Brian Stultz

I disagree with my colleague Robert’s analysis that Kingsbury is awesome. Sure, he’s cool, but he can’t coach. Meanwhile, Texas is a Jekyll and Hyde team that shows up some weeks and disappears others. The Longhorns defense is in for a tough test against Patrick Mahomes and the Tech passing game, but the Tech defense can’t stop anyone. Longhorns win in a shootout.
