Texas Tech vs LSU Pick

Red Raiders vs Tigers Preview

In a tumultuous season that saw it drop three of its final four games and its coach’s future called into question, No. 20 LSU travels to the AdvoCare V100 Texas Bowl for its school-record 16th straight bowl game and 11th under head coach Les Miles. The Tigers clash with offensive dynamo Texas Tech, which is making its 14th bowl appearance in the last 16 years.

Red Raiders vs LSU Prediction

LSU had an off year and the alumni was out for blood. Even the best programs can have a down year or two. What the Tigers need to calm the alumni in the off season is a big win to finish the year. The Red Raider defense is just what the Tigers need to feel good about themselves. This will be a high scoring game with the Tigers covering the 7 point spread.

Pick: LSU -7

Score Prediction: LSU 48 – Texas Tech 31
