After opening the season with three straight wins over Sam Houston, Southern Utah, and Arkansas, the Cougars are 1-2 in their last three contests.
BYU fell at Kansas, beat Cincinnati at home, and got crushed at TCU. The matchup with the Red Raiders will be BYU’s second of three consecutive games against teams from the Lone Star State.
The Red Raiders and Cougars will compete moving forward as members of the Big 12. However, the 2023 meeting will only be the second-ever contest between Texas Tech and BYU.
The 2023 edition will also be the Red Raiders’ first trip to Provo. BYU and Texas Tech’s only previous matchup game was in Lubbock in 1940. The Red Raiders beat the Cougars, 21-20.
