Texas Tech at No. 24 Iowa State
When: 2:30 p.m. Saturday at MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium
Records: Texas Tech (1-2 overall, 0-2 Big 12); Iowa State (2-1, 2-0 Big 12)
Last meeting: Iowa State defeated Texas Tech 34-24 on Oct. 19, 2019, in Lubbock, Tx.
What’s at stake?
This may only be Texas Tech’s fourth game, but it likely will decide the fate of the season and, possibly, Matt Wells’ future in Lubbock. It sounds dramatic, but the Red Raiders need this upset in a bad way. Texas Tech is tied with Oklahoma for eighth place in the conference.
Since Matt Campbell took over in 2016 the Red Raiders are 0-4 against the Cyclones, including an embarrassing 66-10 loss by Patrick Mahomes and company in Campbell’s first year. That year’s Iowa State team finished the year 3-9.

Texas Tech at Kansas State
When: 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Bill Snyder Family Football Stadium in Manhattan, Ks.
Records: Texas Tech (1-1, 0-1 Big 12); Kansas State (1-1, 1-0 Big 12)
Last meeting: Kansas State defeated Texas Tech 30-27 in Lubbock
What’s on the line?
In the last decade, the Red Raiders only managed to beat the Wildcats once in nine meetings. Heading into the 2010s Texas Tech was riding a five-game winning streak against Kansas State. These two teams would be coming off of similarly season-defining wins had Texas Tech not blown a 15 point lead in the waning moments of last week’s contest against Texas.
For Kansas State, its season has already been deeply confusing. The Wildcats opened with a loss to Arkansas State at home, then upset No. 3 Oklahoma in Norman. Texas Tech badly needs to rebound after nearly pulling off a program-defining upset
