The Texas Tech Red Raiders will take on the Kansas Jayhawks on Thursday in the Big 12 Conference opener for both teams.

Texas Tech (2–1) is coming off a 59–45 victory over Louisiana Tech and has scored at least 55 points in each of its three games this season. The Red Raiders offense is once again among the nation's best (61 points and 678.7 yards per game), but its defense continues to be the team's weak link, giving up an average of 531.3 yards per game.

Kansas (1–2) has lost 36 straight true road games and has a 39-game winless streak on the road, last winning a game away from Lawrence in 2009.

Texas Tech is 16–1 all-time against the Jayhawks, including winning last season's contest 30–20.
