This week’s SWC Game of the week features the Texas Tech Red Raiders traveling to College Station to take on the Texas A&M Aggies. A&M leads the all time series 34-29-1, dating to 1923, but Texas Tech has won 8 of the last 11. Texas A&M has won 8 of the last 10 at Kyle Field though. A&M takes it’s unproven 4-0 record into the contest. Texas Tech’s only loss was at TCU, where they failed to score a touchdown. A&M’s 4-2-5 defense (nickel) will get it’s first real test against Mike Leach’s offense. A&M always seems to bring out the best in Texas Tech, the last 2 games at Kyle Field have gone to overtime. Aggie head coach Dennis Franchione tenure at A&M could also be at stake.
This series has been surrounded by talk lately of moving to a neutral site, Dallas’ Cotton Bowl. This move, if completed, would be a terrible move for the spirit behind the games at both Kyle Field and Jones Stadium. Let’s all voice our displeasure to the respected AD’s.
