BYU Cougars vs Texas Tech Red Raiders prediction

The Texas Tech Red Raiders ended the regular season strong, they have the rest advantage, and they beat BYU in the only meeting back in January. You can make a case for the Red Raiders and the free bucket. Still, I like the BYU Cougars and the small chalk. BYU has put together some offensive explosions and despite playing yesterday, the comfortable win over UCF allowed guys to rest a bit. Texas Tech goes through offensive droughts at times, and that won't fly against BYU. I'll lay the bucket.
