The Big 12 had yet to begin play.

This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, crushed its top-rated college basketball picks last season, returning a profit of nearly $6,600 on $100 bets for anybody who followed them. The Sooners have dropped 6 out of 8 games on the road this season.

But just because the Red Raiders are playing much better right now doesn't mean that they'll be able to cover this spread at home. Here's why this win had to mean more for Red Raiders fans.

The story heading into Tuesday's game between No. 23 Oklahoma and No. 7 Texas Tech was all. Losers of six of their last eight games and now a very pedestrian 16-8 on the season, the Sooners have dropped all the way down to No. 23 in the AP Top 25 with a very hard road challenge at No. 7 Texas Tech staring them straight in the face. The Red Raiders, led by head coach Chris Beard are one of the biggest surprises of the season. The Red Raiders four losses came to Seton Hall, at Oklahoma, at Texas and at the Iowa State Cyclones.

All season long, No. 7 Texas Tech and No. 23 Oklahoma have been shining examples of two different ways to win games and gain national attention. The Red Raiders are averaging 6.8 three-pointers per game on 35.1% shooting from beyond the arc.

Jared Terrell scored a team-high 17 points to power the Rams to their 16th consecutive victory, a rout of the Spiders in Kingston, R.I.

Missouri 62, No. 21 Texas A&M 58: Kassius Robertson scored 16 points, Jordan Barnett added 15 and Missouri defeated visiting Texas A&M to push its winning streak to five games. "Let's don't ever take Keenan Evans for granted".

Lon Kruger and his Oklahoma Sooners have hit a rough spot in the season with three straight losses, and 6 in their last 8 games.

Evans is nearly even with Young in scoring over the past six games, which included the first back-to-back games of at least 30 points for a Texas Tech player in more than 15 years. Defensively, Oklahoma is allowing their opponents to average 82.0 ppg on 43.7% shooting from the field. Going toe-to-toe against Young and coming out on top, both individually and as a team, will only further his dossier.

To assess any of Young's performances accurately, it is important to focus not on the points but one two more important statistics; field goal percentage and assists. Against Oklahoma, Smith (13 points, four rebounds, three assists) and Culver (seven points, three assists) combined to score 20 points and dish out six assists with the former extending his streak of double-digit scoring performances to four games. "I thought it was a gutsy game and we knew it was going to be a 40-minute game with Oklahoma". The key to the win was turnovers; Texas Tech committed 15 while Oklahoma committed just ten.
