Follow along here for live game updates from Texas Tech's Big 12 clash with Oklahoma State.

The Red Raiders are coming off a tough 38-27 loss against Kansas State this weekend, which saw them fail to get their first road win of the season. Texas Tech will get another shot at its first away victory of 2022 today against No. 7 Oklahoma State. This conference clash in Stillwater, Oklahoma should be a high octane affair between these two offenses.

Texas Tech and their offense will try to get out to a fast start in this one. They've struggled early on the road and have put themselves behind the eight ball with first half deficits. They'll need to avoid that against the Cowboys if they want to have a chance to win.

Defensively, the Red Raiders have played well, especially their front line. They'll have a tough task slowing down this Oklahoma State offense and their field general Spencer Sanders. Sanders has 15 total touchdowns on the year already and is as talented a passer as there is in the Big 12.

This might be the toughest game on Texas tech's schedule this season, and head coach Joey McGuire will be sure to have his team ready. The Red Raiders look like they're set to take that next step forward and a win against top-ten Oklahoma State would surely prove their conference worth.
