The Texas Tech Red Raiders are home Saturday, but with the point spread against them by 10.5 points, it might not be quite the welcoming they would prefer. They will take on the Iowa State Cyclones at 3:30 p.m. ET at Jones AT&T Stadium after a week off. Texas Tech hasn’t won a contest against Iowa State since Oct. 10 of 2015, but they’ll be looking to end the drought.
The Red Raiders were expected to have a tough go of it two weeks ago, and, well, they did. They suffered a grim 52-21 defeat to the Oklahoma Sooners. Texas Tech was in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 28-7. A silver lining for them was the play of WR Erik Ezukanma, who caught eight passes for one TD and 123 yards.
Meanwhile, the Texas Longhorns typically have all the answers at home, but last week Iowa State proved too difficult a challenge. Iowa State was the clear victor by a 30-7 margin over the Longhorns. The Cyclones’ RB Breece Hall did his thing and rushed for two TDs and 136 yards on 19 carries.
Special teams collected 12 points for Iowa State. K Andrew Mevis delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.
The Red Raiders are now 5-4 while Iowa State sits at 6-3. A pair of defensive stats to keep an eye on: Texas Tech is stumbling into the game with the 238th most passing touchdowns allowed in the nation, having given up 22 on the season. Iowa States have had an even harder time: they are 172nd worst in the nation in passing touchdowns allowed, with 13 on the season. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
The Cyclones are a big 10.5-point favorite against the Red Raiders, according to the latest college football odds.
The oddsmakers were right in line with the betting community on this one, as the game opened as a 10.5-point spread, and stayed right there.

As one receiver comes into the fold for the Los Angeles Rams, another is heading out. On the same day the team signed Odell Beckham Jr. to a one-year contract following his release from the Browns, fellow wide receiver Robert Woods suffered a torn ACL that will end his season, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Dianna Russini.
The injury occurred during Friday’s practice, per Schefter. Woods went down, got up, and actually finished the session while even conducting interviews with the media. While nobody thought anything was wrong, tests later revealed the tear that will now put him on the shelf for the remainder of the year. Specifically, FOX Sports’ Peter Schrager reports that Woods ran a jet sweep, planted his foot and felt something go wrong. The initial hope what that the injury wasn’t serious, but it has since been revealed as a season-ender.
Entering Week 10, Woods was the No. 2 receiver for Los Angeles behind Cooper Kupp. He was second on the team in receptions (45), receiving yards (556) and receiving touchdowns (four). Woods was also coming off one of his better games of the season where he caught seven of his 10 targets for 98 yards in L.A.’s loss to the Tennessee Titans.
With Woods gone, the addition of Beckham naturally carries even greater significance as he now evolves into a necessary piece within the offense rather than a luxury. Woods was second on the team in targets (69), and Beckham will likely pick up that target share from Matthew Stafford along with other Rams pass-catchers like Kupp and Van Jefferson.
