Follow along here for live game updates from Texas Tech's showdown with West Virginia.

It's been nearly a month since Texas Tech played a game at Jones AT&T Stadium, but the Red Raiders will finally return to friendly territory as they host the West Virginia Mountaineers this Saturday. 

Both teams come into this game at 3-3, but Tech holds the advantage with an undefeated home streak to uphold.

The Mountaineers just took down Baylor in a 43-40 shootout, and this contest might be just as fast-paced. Texas Tech has struggled to score on the road, but they've done just the opposite at home. If it can get off to a fast start, it might be able to win this one and get back over .500.

Coach Joey McGuire's first season has gone well - better than expected even - but Tech is going to need to get wins where they can, especially at this point in the season. West Virginia might not be a cakewalk, but it's a game that the Red Raiders should win. 

The key for Texas Tech will be to limit turnovers and convert in the red zone. The defense has held up well when it's had good field position, so keeping them fresh will also be a priority. 

As long as Tech does the little things, the Red Raiders will have a good shot at securing this victory.
