September 10, 2022
The Texas Tech Red Raiders will be looking for a fifth-straight win over the Houston Cougars when these teams face off for their 34th and final matchup as non-conference opponents on Saturday afternoon. The two schools will regularly face each other going forward as Houston is set to join the Big 12 Conference starting in the 2023 season. Before this game, Texas Tech has won four straight in this series and nine of the last ten meetings. That includes a 38-21 victory a year ago at NRG Stadium.
Bet on one of the teams with DraftKings Sportsbook. DraftKings has Texas Tech as a slight moneyline favorite at -150 against Houston, who enters at +130 to win.
Why bet on Texas Tech?
✅ Texas Tech scored 63 points in their season opener, and should cause problems for a Houston defense that struggled to get stops late against UTSA in Week 1.
✅ Donovan Smith had 221 passing yards last week against Murray State. He has been named the starting quarterback for this game, and should have similar success against an inconsistent Houston defense.
✅ Texas Tech won all four games it was a moneyline favorite in last season.

Houston Cougars vs Texas Tech Red Raiders
Houston escaped 37-35 over UTSA last week in their season opener. Clayton Tune threw for 206 yards and three touchdowns, making several big plays with his arm and his legs to help Houston escape with a win as a road favorite in San Antonio.
Running back Alton McCaskill IV will not be available for the entire 2022 season after suffering from a torn ACL on his left knee during spring practice.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Texas Tech opened the season by blowing out Murray State, a Division II opponent, 63-10 in Week 1, giving them a 1-0 start to the year. Donovan Smith threw four touchdown passes and had 221 passing yards after replacing senior quarterback Tyler Shough. Smith should get the start for this game against Houston due to the injury to Shough suffered last week.
Shough left in the first half of the game last Saturday with what appeared to be a re-injured shoulder sustained against Murray State. The team also said that Cam Ron Valdes with his knee injury and Joseph Adedire with a shoulder injury are questionable for this contest.
