This week’s game of the week is Texas Tech at TCU. TCU is ranked #20 and Texas Tech in #24 in the AP poll. Both teams enter the contest 2-0. Tech leads the all time series 28-22-3. The first meeting was in 1926 and the last time they played was in 2004. Texas Tech joined the conference in 1960 and has never won an outright title. TCU was a charter member of the SWC.
Tech’s high flying offense this year is led by sophomore Graham Harrell. Yet again Tech has a new quarterback, but this year he is not a senior. TCU finished last season ranked 9 in the USA Today Coaches Bowl and hopes to crash the BCS party. Since 2000 they have had 4 10 win seasons and 3 conference championships.
This matchup of ranked opponents promises to be a great one, so if you’re in the Fort Worth area, you should try to make it out to the game.
