The Ultimate Big 12 Road Trip: Week 10
By David Ubben
We're continuing our march across Big 12 country with your dream trek for 2013. Want to see the best of the best in the Big 12 this season? Come along with us.
We don't make the final decisions about where we spend our fall Saturdays, but I'm walking week by week through the 2013 season and forecasting where I'd like to be. Circumstances change as games happen, of course, but here's how I'd project the season. Road nonconference games count. Let's move on with the next week.
Not a fantastic slate of games in Week 10 across the Big 12, but heading out to Lubbock where many a Big 12 title bid has died a difficult death should be really fun. West Texas was the beginning of the end for West Virginia last year, and the Red Raiders developed a reputation for being the only team in the Big 12 who could beat Oklahoma and Texas when the league's two national programs were at the height of their respective powers.
OSU has taken care of business during its last two trips to Lubbock in 2010 and 2011, but Kliff Kingsbury's talked over and over about returning the "swagger" to Texas Tech that seemed to have exited with Tommy Tuberville's arrival. That means not being afraid of anyone, and OSU could come to Lubbock atop the Big 12 standings. You should see plenty of great offense in this game, and two teams that love to play as fast as anyone in the league. First team to 100 offensive snaps wins?
