Houston vs. Texas Tech Prediction

Following a completely opposite spectrum of results in week one, it may seem easy to take Texas Tech, especially as underdogs. However, with all due respect to Murray State, Houston faced much stiffer competition in the form of UTEP, last week, and something has to be said for battling back from a 21-7 deficit on the road to defeat the Road Runners in double overtime. However, the Red Raiders, as always, seem to have yet another prolific offense, led by Tyler Shough, however, it may be Donovan Smith's time in Lubbock as Though went down with an apparent shoulder injury in their 63-10 blowout win over the Racers.

The injury will reportedly keep the senior out of action for a few weeks, which is why oddsmakers aren't too sure where to lay the line for this one with sophomore, Donovan Smith under center. It may be best to stay away from either team and take the total in what's sure to be a bonafide shootout.
