The Cowboys come to Lubbock for a 1:00 PM tip-off.

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

The Oklahoma State Cowboys are having a down year. They have loss 6 straight after starting the season 10-2. Some nice early season wins came against UConn, Georgetown, Tulsa, and Wichita State. Their first 6 Big 12 games were very tough tests against teams like West Virginia, Baylor, Iowa State and Kansas.

While the Cowboys are 0-6 in conference play, I am nervous about this game. Oklahoma State is always a solid basketball program and can get hot in Big 12 competition. The Red Raiders are favored by 6 points at the moment and will put their 12-0 home record on the line. Texas Tech picked up a much needed win over TCU in their last outing and will look to get above .500 in Big 12 play. Can Texas Tech stay hot at home or will Oklahoma State pick up their first conference win?

Prediction

Texas Tech 76 - Oklahoma State 72
