Shane’s Free Pick

BYU’s offense really struggled in the last game and they are going  to really struggle  in this game again. BYU only scored 11 points and they are going to score less than  20 points here. Texas Tech is averaging 32.3 points per game and they are going to have no issue running up the score here. BYU isn’t going to be keeping up and Texas Tech is going to cover the spread here.
