COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Texas Tech has hit the over in its last 4 games and in 5 of its last 6 road games and 5 of its last 6 non-conference games. This is not a battle of great defenses, especially against the pass. Despite that, both teams are both heavy on passing the ball and know how to pile on the points. Texas Tech won’t change much about its style with Kliff Kingsbury as head coach and June Jones isn’t afraid to be aggressive on offense. Because of that, look for the two teams to hit the over of 59 points tonight.
