Auburn-Tennessee and LSU-Georgia highlight a full slate of Top 25 matchups this weekend. Our scouts have examined them all:

Saturday, Oct. 2
TEXAS TECH RED RAIDERS  at
No. 2 OKLAHOMA SOONERS
Norman, Okla.
Memorial Stadium
12:30 p.m. ET - Fox Sports Net
Texas Tech and Oklahoma meet for the 12th time Saturday, with Oklahoma leading the series 9-2 after four straight victories -- including last year's 56-25 drubbing at Lubbock. This game features two of the most explosive offenses in the country. Texas Tech leads the nation in passing offense and is averaging 40.3 points per game, while Oklahoma represents the most prolific scoring program in college football history. The similarity between these two teams is not an accident. Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach was an offensive coordinator at Oklahoma under Sooners head coach Bob Stoops. Leach left for Texas Tech in 1999 and has faced his mentor four times without registering a win. Can the pupil finally beat his teacher, or will the daunting task of playing in Norman prove too much for the Red Raiders?
