VEGAS: Tech a slight favorite for next Saturday’s game

Up next for the surging Cyclones is a road trip to Lubbock.

The experts in the desert say that Texas Tech (4-2, 1-2) is a 5-point favorite over Iowa State (4-2, 2-1) for next Saturday’s 11 a.m. kick that will be televised on FS1.

Kliff Kingsbury’s Red Raiders gave up 29 unanswered points on Saturday in a 46-35 loss at West Virginia. Meanwhile, Iowa State cruised past Kansas at home via a 45-0 final. Two weeks ago, Tech won in Lawrence 65-19.

Of course, Iowa State defeated Texas Tech 66-10 in Ames last year, so revenge will likely the Red Raiders minds.
