Texas Tech Red Raiders versus Texas Longhorns NCAA Football Real Money Fantasy Picks 11-26-2015
It’s the battle of Texas NCAA programs during thanksgiving. It’s going to sizzle like a turkey dinner. Fantasy football GM’s can tune to FS1 on Thursday November 26th at 7:30PM Eastern Time to track the results of their DFS roster picks.
The Texas Tech Red Raiders are 6-5 overall this year, but 3-5 against conference teams. Their offensive squad has been putting up excellent numbers. The Red Raiders are third in the nation in yards gained with 588 yards per game. It’s a lot due to their passing game, which is ranked just behind Washington State for most in the NCAA. They look like a team going in the right direction.
The Texas Longhorns have not played to their expectations. They are 4-6 overall and 3-4 within their conference. With frustrated fans demanding action, it will be interesting how they will redeem their status as champions.
Texas Tech QB:
Mahomes is 89 yards away from reaching 4,000, this the season. He has 31 touchdown and stands in 3rd for passing yards throughout the country. The Red Raiders QB has been solid and will continue to be for years to come.
Texas Tech RB:
Washington has 1,282 rushing yards this year. It’s nothing like his quarterback’s numbers, but he can be enough of a weapon to be a wild card whenever. If given some space, he will run pass the scrimmage without any problems. Funny enough, he leads the team with 7 receiving TD’s. Washington also holds 12 rushing touchdown, this year.
Chris Warren & Kirk Johnson
Both freshmen will get some playing time because of D’Onta Foreman’s pinkie injury. They combine for 23 carries with 100 yards and no touchdown. Despite that, they are slated to become highly efficient pair in the backfield.
