The Texas Longhorns are on the road against a Big 12 rival, as they head to United Supermarkets Arena to face Texas Tech. The Longhorns are in an interesting position, as they find themselves in a three-way tie for fourth place in the conference. They have a conference record of 7-8, which is the same conference record as the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Oklahoma Sooners. The Texans have a chance to improve their conference record with a win over the Red Raiders.
The Texans are on a three-game winning streak, beating other Big 12 teams such as the TCU Horned Frogs, the Kansas State Wildcats and the Mountaineers.

They are a better team at home (11-5),but they are only one game from being .500 when on the road (with a road record of 4-5). They can improve their road record, continue their win streak, and get another win over a conference rival if they beat Texas Tech in today's game.
The Red Raiders remain third in the Big 12, as they still have a long way to go before catching Baylor or Kansas. However, the Red Raiders have a conference record of 9-6 and have a lead over the teams in the three-way tie.
In their last game, the Red Raiders lost to the Sooners 65-51. Kevin McCullar led the team with 13, and Chris Clarke had 11. They were the only two players to score in double figures as even the Red Raiders' leading scorer Jahmi'us Ramsey finished the game scoreless.
Their 51 points in this game was their lowest of the season, and while they cut it 14 points, they were down by as many as 18 at one point in the game.
Texas Tech is back home and could get a win over a team they beat earlier this month.
