The Texas Longhorns and the Texas Tech Red Raiders are meeting up in a huge Big 12 conference matchup and the rivalry game is going down on Fox Sports 1 and the game will be on TV and streaming live starting up at 7:30 pm and the game will be at Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium and could have big implications for the conference.
The Longhorns have been playing very well over the second half of the season and they started just 1-2 on the year before winning six straight games and after losing last week to Oklahoma State, the team will try to rebound before their matchup at the end of the year against Baylor in another Texas Longhorn matchup. Case McCoy has been playing better down the stretch and he has been helped along by Jonathan Gray and Jaxon Shipley and now the team will be going up against a tough offense in the Red Raiders. Kliff Kingsbury is the new coach and Texas comes in averaging just under 250 passing yards per game and they are scoring just over 30 points per game this season.
Tech comes in first in the nation in passing yards per game with over 400 and they are scoring nearly 40 points per game and while the team has lost four in a row, the last game was to Baylor and that was a big game that saw the team give up over 60 points. The team opened the season 7-0 before going on the four game slide and that streak included losses against three ranked opponents in the Bears and the Cowboys as well as Oklahoma and the team also lost to Kansas State and the team now will try and turn things around against the Texas Longhorns.
In the NFL there were some exciting games and one in the same state included the Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders. The Dallas Cowboys are ready for a quick turnaround on Thanksgiving Day, as the team plays it's traditional NFL turkey day contest against the Oakland Raiders and the Week 13 matchup will be on CBS starting to at 4:30 pm from AT&T Stadium in Texas with Tony Romo leading the way.
The Cowboys are in great position to make a run in the NFC east division, as they are undefeated against the Giants, Eagles and Redskins in four games, including defeating New York twice -- in the opening game of the year and on Sunday at MetLife Stadium -- and now the team has a chance to add two wins in a matter of days. The Cowboys can put two victories in the win column before the Eagles even play in Week 13, as they just are coming off their bye and that is big as the Cowboys try to get their division lead back
Tony Romo has been playing very well this season and he was one of the main reasons the Boys won on Sunday and if they end up winning the division or getting into the playoffs, he will be the player most responsible for it. The Cowboys once again have a matchup against an NFC east opponent at the end of the season that could decide the division, as the Eagles are on the schedule and that game could be huge.
