Texas Tech v Iowa State

To anyone at VTM or any Tech fans that want to take me up on this bet, let me know. If Texas Tech wins I will eat a taco with a flour tortilla base, but if they lose you’d have to eat a taco from a corn based tortilla. It’s a win-win, now let’s get to picking.

(RV) Iowa State @ (RV) Texas Tech | October 21th, 11AM - FS1 | Line: -7 Texas Tech | O/U: 67.5 to 68.5

The last time Iowa State went 2-1 in conference play was 2002 (I guess, it’s actually 2011, I’m keeping the video). What happened to Tech in 2002 against Iowa State?

We’d win, 31-17 on our Homecoming night. This year, it’s Homecoming @ Texas Tech, so I still feel this tips it to the good guys.

Iowa State 38 - Texas Tech 31


Baylor v Oklahoma State

#10 Oklahoma State @ Texas | October 21th, 11AM - ABC | Line: -7 Oklahoma State | O/U: 65

Because of this crime against humanity, I hope the Longhorns win. I also want a 1 loss Oklahoma State waltzing into Ames.

#10 Oklahoma State 45 - Texas 41

#9 OkLahoma @ Kansas State | October 21th, 3PM - Fox | Line: -14 OkLahoma | O/U: 54

Kansas State without Ertz is horrendous. So, Sooners win.

#9 OkLahoma 35 - Kansas State 7


NCAA Football: Texas Tech at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

#23 West Virginia @ BayLLLLLLor | October 21th, 7PM - FS1 | Line: -9.5 West Virginia | O/U: 70

BayLLLLLLor will become BayLLLLLLLor and that’s that.

West Virginia 35 - BayLLLLLLor 10


NCAA Football: Kansas at Iowa State Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

Kansas @ #4 TCU | October 21th, 7PM - Fox | Line: -39 TCU | O/U: 58

Kansas, I’m so sorry this game is on national TV. Maybe you’ll score more points this week than last week? (I guess the one point safety is so rare it won’t happen)

TCU a lot - Kansas less than 0
