Texas Tech allowed Iowa State to fight back from a 10-point deficit to tie the game with just 1:00 minute left in the 4th quarter, however, the Red Raiders were able to quicky drive it down the field in the ensuing possession and won in dramatic fashion with a 62-yard FG as time expired.

The Cowboys are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games. The Red Raiders are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win.
Texas Tech was impressive against a very solid Iowa State defense, however, the Cowboys have been outstanding this season defensively, currently ranking 8th in scoring defense & 6th in rushing defense and have held their last three opponents to just a combined 23 points. Texas Tech has really struggled defensively this season and between the fact that I think that they will have their hands full with the Cowboys rushing attack and that Oklahoma State has been great ATS on the road this season, I think the play here is to take Oklahoma State to cover this road spread. Good Luck!
