No. 14 Texas Tech Red Raiders get a break from Big 12 action with a road game at South Carolina as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge. It’s a road game though, and the Red Raiders have struggled mightily as visitors.
South Carolina wants to prove they deserve some consideration when the selection committee goes to work. A win against Tech would be their third against a top 20 team this season. The Red Raiders need to figure out how to play well on the road. A win would solidify their ranking and give them some much needed confidence for their remaining road schedule.
