The Texas Tech Red Raiders were only 2.5-point underdogs to the TCU Horned Frogs in Week 6, but their defense took a beating and lost 52-31. Despite collecting 560 yards of total offense, the Red Raiders failed to keep up on the scoreboard.

Texas Tech’s defense got gashed in the ground game, allowing 396 rushing yards and five touchdowns. 

Speaking of terrible defensive football, the Kansas Jayhawks lost to the Iowa State Cyclones last week, 59-7. The Jayhawks allowed the Cyclones to gather 564 yards of total offense with Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy throwing for 245 yards and four touchdowns, and running back Breece Hall to rush for 123 yards and two touchdowns on 17 carries.

Which bad defense will come out with a win on Saturday: Texas Tech or Kansas?

Texas Tech vs. Kansas Prediction and Pick

It’s been established that both of these defenses are just awful.

What’s not entirely awful is Texas Tech’s offense. The Red Raiders are averaging 34.8 points per game, which is much better than the Jayhawks 17.2 points per game. 

Kansas’ one win came against FCS South Dakota, 17-14. In its four consecutive losses since, it allowed a low of 45 points to the Baylor Bears on Sept. 18th.

This game is most likely going to be a one-sided bloodbath. Maybe the Red Raiders can hit the over on their own.

I’m taking Texas Tech on the spread at -17.5 and over 67.5.
