Through 3 Quarters
The Texas Tech Red Raiders were the heavy favorites here for a reason. After three quarters it’s looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the FIU Panthers as Texas Tech lead 44-21. A victory for FIU would counteract both their recent loss and Texas Tech’s recent win.

What to Know
The FIU Panthers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the Texas Tech Red Raiders at 7 p.m. ET Saturday at Jones AT&T Stadium. FIU is the clear underdog, so they’re hoping it’s the size of the fight that determines this one.
The Panthers fought the good fight in their overtime matchup against the Texas State Bobcats last week but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 23-17.
Meanwhile, even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, Texas Tech beat the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks 28-22 last week.
Texas Tech’s win lifted them to 2-0 while FIU’s defeat dropped them down to 1-1. We’ll find out if the Red Raiders can add another positive mark to their record or if FIU can shake off the loss and take the spring out of Texas Tech’s step.
