The Red Raiders welcome the struggling Jayhawks on Saturday in a game that Texas Tech is favored to win by nearly four touchdowns.
The Kansas Jayhawks (1-8, 0-6) travel to Lubbock to take on No. 22 Texas Tech (6-3, 3-3) on Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium.
The Red Raiders have run into troubles in 2012, losing in consecutive weeks to Kansas State and Texas. Playing five straight games against ranked Big 12 opponents, Texas Tech is just 2-3 since Oct. 6 and will look to take advantage of a relatively weaker schedule to end the season.
Kansas, meanwhile, has struggled mightily under new coach Charlie Weis and has lost eight straight games since an opening-week win over South Dakota State. The Jayhawks seemed to be on the verge of a turnaround after a tough and hard-fought loss to Texas but struggled once again in a 41-14 loss to Baylor on Nov. 3.
Texas Tech is favored by a whopping 26 points in the game over Kansas, with the total for the game set at 59 points.
Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. CT on Saturday with television coverage on Fox Sports Net.
