The Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma live TV and streaming football matchup takes place Saturday afternoon as part of the 2015 NCAA Week 8 schedule. The Sooners are continuing to stay hopeful that they can be a potential playoff team, despite a rough loss at Texas in the Red River Rivalry game a few weekends ago. The Red Raiders are looking to continue their decent start to the season and will try to pull off the road upset. The latest NCAA football live online and televised action will arrive from the ABC and ESPN networks on Saturday.
According to Campus Insiders in their Oct. 23 game preview, the Sooners are coming into this matchup after a 55-0 rout last weekend of Kansas State on the road. That came just a week after losing their first game of the season, to lowly Texas, and hours after airplane troubles saw their flight to Kansas delayed for hours. However, it has fans considering the recent win one of the best performances in some times for a Bob Stoops’ team not in a bowl game.
The Red Raiders are currently 5-2, and on a two-game winning streak. Their sole losses of the season came against TCU and Baylor, both of who are ranked among the top give teams in the nation. While Texas Tech is unranked, a win Saturday could get them into the Top 25, or make their game against Oklahoma State that much more interesting. Tech features the third best quarterback in the nation in terms of total yards as Patrick Mahomes has 2,618 currently. That also makes them the top offensive team in the nation with a total of 4,366 yards heading into this game.
Add in the fact that the Red Raiders are fourth in the nation in total tackles and one would expect a potential upset. Odds makers and sportsbooks see this as a one-sided matchup though, as Oklahoma opened as 12 point favorites and have risen up to become more than two touchdown favorites at many books. On the moneyline, OU is a heavy -660 favorite, with Tech a +540 underdog. Today’s over/under points total is a hefty 72-1/5 total points for the game.
Saturday afternoon’s Texas Tech vs. Oklahoma matchup has as scheduled start time of 3:30 p.m. Eastern Time. Live television coverage will be made available on ABC or ESPN2 in various regions of the United States. For live streaming online, cable and satellite customers will want to watch the game feed on the ESPN3 or WatchESPN website and mobile apps. There’s also live stream audio for Sirius XM Satellite subscribers on channel 136 as early as 2:30 p.m. ET.
