Texas Bowl in Houston

The Texas Tech Red Raiders (7-5) and Ole Miss Rebels (8-4) will meet in the Texas Bowl Wednesday at the NRG Stadium in Houston. The Texas Bowl is an annual postseason NCAA-sanctioned Division I FBS college football bowl game first held in 2006 in HoustonTexas. 

The Teams

Texas Tech Red Raiders

This is head coach Joey McGuire’s first year in Lubbock. Texas Tech finished 5-4 in Big 12 play and had a big win against Texas early on in the season. The Red Raiders have a young talented young quarterback in Behren Morton and all of these combinations should make for a motivated team.  

Ole Miss Rebels

Ole Miss at one point in the season was a top ten team, but it was a disappointing finish to the season for Ole Miss . A three-game losing streak to end the year has left a sour taste and will have them wanting to end the year on a high note. Mississippi has not had many opt outs for this game, however, so Kiffin should have close to a full roster at his disposal.

The Rebels are a perfect 3-0 against the Red Raiders in bowl contests and will want to keep that in tact.
