Preview: The first game of the New Year will feature the Northwestern Wildcats and the Texas Tech Red Raiders. This game will take place in Dallas, Texas as part of the TicketCity Bowl.

Both teams come into the game with 7-5 records, and both played out of major conferences. The Northwestern Wildcats lost three of their last four games on the season. Northwestern finished in a three way tie for fourth place in the Big Ten. The Wildcats notable wins on the season came over Vanderbilt and Iowa. The Wildcats will be without their starting quarterback Dan Persa. Persa went down to an injury in the Iowa win, and didn’t play against Illinois and Wisconsin. In the season finale against the Badgers, Northwestern allowed 70 points. On the season, Northwestern scored 25.7 points per game and allowed 27.7 points per game.

For the Red Raiders of Texas Tech, in their first season without Mike Leach at the helm, they finished in fifth place in the South Division of the Big 12. The Red Raiders have notable wins over Colorado, Missouri and Houston. On the season, Texas Tech averaged 32.1 points per game. The offense was led by quarterback Taylor Potts. Potts threw for over 3300 yards and 31 touchdowns. His top receiver has been Lyle Leong. Leong caught 64 passes on the season; with 17 of them going for six points.

My Sports Betting Picks: Northwestern’s offense has struggled without Persa. Look for the Red Raiders to score a bunch of points. Texas Tech wins 49-17.
