The Red Raiders and Sooners will both seek their first conference win of the season on Saturday.

The Texas Tech Red Raiders men's basketball team is in back in action on Saturday night, as they are set to host the Oklahoma Sooners in a Big 12 showdown. 

Both the Red Raiders and Sooners will enter their matchup on Saturday looking to turn things around in conference play, as both teams have started out 0-2 in conference play. 

For the Red Raiders, their opening losses in Big 12 play have come against TCU and Kansas by a combined nine points, while the Sooners have lost to Texas and Iowa State by a combined four points.

Defensively, both teams have been stout so far this season. The Red Raiders are holding opponents to 63.6 points per game while the Sooners have held opponents to 61.5 points per game. However, the Red Raiders' offense has been more potent, averaging 79.5 points per game compared to Oklahoma's 68.4.

If the Red Raiders can get their offense going early then they have a good chance of getting their first Big 12 win of the season. Otherwise, a defensive slugfest could benefit the Sooners and make this game ugly. 

Now, here is how to watch the Red Raiders take on the Sooners on Saturday night:
